Meeting with Thailandís Royall Irrigation Department

GIWEH’s Director General, Dr. Salim was received by his Excellency Dr. Somkiat Prajamwong, Deputy Director General of Thailand’s Royal Irrigation Department (RID) at the 2nd World Irrigation Forum in Chiang Mai from 6-12 November, 2016.

This fruitful meeting brought GIWEH and the RID together to discuss different opportunities for collaboration.

The RID is involved in a project in the Chao Phraya river basin in Thailand for drought management and water supply. The project has been approved, and the conceptual approach of the project is in progress. Discussions focused on possible collaboration with GIWEH under the umbrella of Asia Water Council (AWC) to act as a consultant for Knowledge Base and Dissemination.

Considering the specific needs of small farmers and RID, GIWEH and the RID explored the possibility to work on small-scale projects for implementation.

GIWEH is looking forward to further collaboration in Thailand!
