ICRAF has been working in Thailand for more than 20 years, in collaboration with Chiang Mai University. We are co-founders of the Knowledge Support Center for the Greater Mekong Sub-region, which aims to increase understanding of the complex and often poorly understood sub-region by sharing information about issues related to natural resources management, environmental services and climate change. This is a matter of increasing urgency as all countries that lie within its scope are undergoing rapid development with a corresponding degradation of the subregion’s natural capital.
