Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has urged people to abide by the government’s water management plan in order to promote the sustainable development of water resources.

The Prime Minister recently had the opportunity to give an opening speech at the ‘Thailand Sustainable Water Management Forum 2016’ where he said climate change affects water supplies worldwide. It is a global issue and the world needs an effective management plan.

General Prayut added Thais are fortunate to have the guidance of His Majesty the King whose endeavors and perseverance have motivated them to approach water shortages in a sustainable manner.

The Prime Minister also admitted that, due to some legal limitations, it remains difficult for the government to deal with certain water management issues directly.

With risks and impacts taken into account, the government has devised a plan that will ensure sufficient water for domestic consumption until 2022. Despite the plan, General Prayut encouraged Thai people to continue to conserve and use water wisely.

The forum was organized as a joint endeavor between Utokapat Foundation Under the Royal Patronage of H.M. The King, Siam Cement Group and the Thai Journalists Association to raise awareness of the importance of water resources.
