CLIMATE CHANGE
Strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-related hazards and natural disasters are crucial to sustainable future.  
 
Climate Change is one of the most serious and pressing global challenges with momentous consequences if left unattended. To tackle this issue, a concerted effort is utmost important as all countries, large and small, have a shared responsibility and a role to play.
 
Thailand strives to become a low-carbon society and to achieve an environmental-sound economy. Guided by the “Sufficiency Economy Philosophy” (SEP), we opted for a development model that seeks a balance between economic prosperity and building resilience in all areas including environment. From forest conservation and rehabilitation to renewable energy and sustainable agricultural practice, a number of SEP led projects has guided the Thai people in managing our natural environment in the way that boosts resilience and adaptive capacity to adverse impacts of climate change and natural disasters while focusing on local communities. 
 
The AITC courses under the theme “Climate Change” are part of our commitment to work with the international community to address the challenge of climate change.
