    Project: Thai Coast: Coastal Vulnerability, Resilience and Adaptation in Thailand
    The Thai-coast project is helping improve scientific understanding of the vulnerability of Thailand’s coastal communities to hydro-meteorological hazards, including storms, floods and coastal erosion, under future climate change. For the study sites in Krabi and Nakhon Si Thammarat Provinces, key findings are that modelled future climate change indicates more extended and severe floods in Southern Thailand with the risk of flash floods increasing significantly, and erosion and accretion rates are more dramatic on mangrove coastlines compared with sandy coastlines. Despite variable physical and socio-economic resilience, the two study sites have comparable coastal vulnerability index (CVI) values. Project results impact through public engagement, dissemination and dialogue with policy makers and coastal communities.
