BACKGROUND:

Thailand is located within a global production and regional consumption hub for market commodities. The country is the largest producer of rubber in the world, as well as one of the top international producers of palm oil and sugarcane. Thailand is also a major regional buyer and producer of forestry products. The production of these key agricultural commodities has contributed to economic growth in Thailand, which has provided significant economic benefits and reduced poverty. But like many countries, Thailand is facing serious environmental challenges due to this rapid economic growth, including mangrove deforestation, reduced forest cover leading to increased GHG emissions, water and air pollution and loss of biodiversity. Thailand is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and therefore supports international efforts to lower carbon emissions to mitigate climate change. Thailand has submitted an Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to support the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Thailand also submitted Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs).

Developing sustainable low-carbon production and consumption practices for key agricultural and forestry commodities in Thailand is the principle goal of this project and will have major environmental benefits nationally, regionally and globally. Objectives for this project include:

  1. National governments will get support for the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) or related mitigation strategies for reducing carbon emissions in the forestry and agricultural sectors
  2. Business partners will be encouraged to implement new or strengthen existing sustainable business practices.
  3. Consumers will be informed on sustainably produced goods and the benefits of sustainable consumption.
  4. International programmes like the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP-SCP) will be the basis for the development of SCP activities in Thailand
  5. This project is also being implemented in Indonesia and the Philippines, so there will be regional impacts and opportunities to share lessons learned with WWF colleagues in those two countries.
