Thailand is one of the most biodiverse countries in Southeast Asia, with unique ecosystems including mountain range and marine and coastal ecosystems. The country’s biodiversity is threatened by poor agricultural practices, illegal logging, industrialization and pollution, among others. Thailand is in the initial stages of its assessment process under BES-Net II, with political support from the office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning and technical backstopping support from UNEP-WCMC. Thailand is also a priority country for future catalytic support under BES-Net II’s BES Solution Funds to promote the uptake of national ecosystem assessment recommendations once the process is finalized.
