EEPSEA supports seminar on beach erosion in Thailand

Last 30 January 2015, Prince of Songkla University’s Department of Economics, with support from EEPSEA, conducted a seminar that focused on discussing the beach erosion problem along the southern region of the Gulf of Thailand and on identifying potential alternative policies and measures as solution. The issue has become critical and has received much interest from many sectors because of the constant failure of existing preventive measures to rehabilitate the beaches. The relevance of environmental economics research was emphasized, especially during the presentation of the economic value of sandy beaches. More than 60 stakeholders attended the event particularly representatives from relevant government agencies, NGOs, and the mass media as well as from the academe.
