The 12th National Economic and Social Development Plan (2012-2016) sets a vision in moving Thailand towards a low carbon and climate resilient society and aims to promote sustainable economic and social growth that is environmentally-friendly. Important steps have been taken to pave the way for low carbon and climate resilient society, however, local authorities especially municipalities are facing a wide range of challenges in the transition towards ensuring a low carbon urban development. Rapid economic development, urbanization and climate change pose a threat to the management of municipalities/cities with regards to sustainability.
