A situational analysis of Thailand’s Lower Songkhram River Basin. The report provides general background on the basin, then covers its history, people and livelihoods, biodiversity and environmental issues, development trends and politics and institutions. The authors then provide their own analysis, highlighting the high reliance of local communities on wetlands-based resources. Annexes provide data on biodiversity (particularly bird and fish species); irrigation weirs and salt mining activities, agricultural statistics and ecosystem/habitat classification; and an analysis of risks.
