General Description of the Research Project

Applying observation and forecasting technology to flood risk management transdisciplinarily
The advance of climate change is concerned to increase flood risk such as the large scale flooding that occurred in the Chao Phraya River Basin in the Central Thailand in 2011. To reduce these risks, we are working to combine in-situ and satellite observations with numerical simulation technology to provide early warning information, encourage appropriate land usage, combine an effective range of initiatives such as changes in operational rules for reservoirs, and promote dialog with government, citizens, and other stakeholders to construct an adaptation strategy that provides the maximum benefit to society at large.

Contribution to the development and realization of an appropriate adaptation strategy, ideally with the potential for expansion to neighboring countries.
We aim to contribute to the smooth construction and realization of a climate change adaptation strategy for the Kingdom of Thailand by developing the technologies and co-design methods required to develop an integrated adaptation strategy, establishing best practices, and fostering human resources in the field of adaptation. In addition, we aim to propose effective, sustainable solutions to climate change that can also be applied in neighboring South East Asian nations.
