Thailand Launches New 4-Year Climate Change Program

Spotlight Activity: Thailand Launches New 4-Year Climate Change Program

On May 2, 2018, The Nation published a news report, which highlights Thailand’s recent strategy for mitigating climate change. To enhance climate change mitigation projects, Thailand has partnered with Germany for implementing the four-year (2018-2021) Thai-German Climate Programme. The core objective of this programme is to “provide financial support for climate change mitigation efforts in Thailand, with a team of international and national experts working closely with partners in the Thai government”. The fund for the programme, around 17.9 million Euros (690 million baht) was granted by a German environmental group called “German Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety Ministry (BMU)”. Another environmental organization in Germany, the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) will be actively involved in the Thai-German Climate Programme facilitating climate change mitigation projects in Thailand and providing different workshop trainings. Here, Mr. Tim Mahler, the GIZ country director for Thailand and Malaysia states, “GIZ will work closely with civil society organisations and academics, as well as the official Thai partners and public sector. GIZ will further seek close cooperation with other projects in Thailand on climate change to ensure that international support is implemented as effectively as possible”.

For developing Thailand’s climate change mitigation strategies, Mr. Stephan Contius, BMU Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development further mentions five sectoral plans which will be included under the Thai-German Climate Programme. According to Mr. Contius the five sectoral plans include: “implementation of nationally determined contributions (NDCs) at the sub-national level, greenhouse gas measurement, establishing reporting and verification systems, mobilising funds to implement the NDCs, and extension of international cooperation”.
