THE PROJECT FOR FLOOD COUNTERMEASURES FOR THAILAND AGRICULTURAL SECTOR, THE KINGDOM OF THAILAND
(2012-2013)
Irrigation canal was heavily collapsed by flood.
Water Purification Facility was installed for ensuring drinking water in the case of future flood.
From the end of July 2011 and into 2012, Thailand experienced a massive flood in the Chao Phraya River basin, with vast areas submerged and significant after-effects on a scale that had not been experienced before in Thailandfs recent history. People living and working in this basin suffered from the huge scale of damage caused by this long-term inundation. Economic losses due to the flood and subsequent loss of work opportunities is estimated to be between 400 and 1,300 billion baht or more than 10% of GDP. Damages to agriculture have been reported to be as high as 72 billion baht.The outputs of this project are: 1) recovery of productivity of damaged pastures, 2) guidelines on rehabilitation and reinforcement of irrigation facilities, and 3) guidelines on disaster-resilient agriculture and agricultural community planning. Thus, through this project, JICA provides support to both short-term and long-term efforts of the Government of Thailand in the agricultural sector. The one of the output of this project is guidelines on disaster-resilient agriculture and agricultural community planning.. These guidelines were designed for use in the entire Chao Phraya River basin so that rural agricultural communities in these areas will be ready and capable to cope with any future large floods.
