Transcript of "Water Governance in Contract Farming: A Comparative Study Between Huay Luang River Basin in Thailand and Nam Ngum River Basin in Laos "

  1. 1. Water Governance in Contract Farming: A Comparative Study between Huay Luang river basin in Thailand and Nam Ngum river basin in Laos Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy. Hanoi, Vietnam, November 13-14, 2012 Panpilai Sukhonthasindhu M-POWER, third call
  2. 2. Objectives• to study the change process of the resources utilization, water use patterns in intensified or commercialized agriculture.• to understand conditions which are drivers, constraints, potentials, and opportunities in which local users choose to respond, negotiate or accommodate to those changes in two countries where socio-economic conditions differ.• It is anticipated that the research will identify development policy gaps and opportunities for policy making process.
