Bang Kaew Mangrove Restoration Project

In the past 60 years, Thailand focused on economic growth as their National Economic and Social Development Plan was geared towards increasing production. As construction grew, the number of water channels decreased drastically. With the rise of buildings and economic development, came increased flooding resulting in annual income loss.

The community learning centre in the mangrove forest of Bang Kaeo sub-district welcomed many visitors both from within Thailand and abroad who came to learn about the inclusive​ mangrove management ​that helped the community fought the fight against coastal erosion.

More recently, the community has received support from both government and non-government sectors to achieve more effective and sustainable coastal management.
