    Education in Thailand - An OECD-UNESCO Perspective

    Thailand’s education system stands at a crossroads. Significant investment has widened access to education and the country performs relatively well in international assessments compared with its peers. But the benefits have not been universally distributed and Thailand has not received the return on its spending on education that it might have expected. This report encourages Thailand to focus on four priority areas to prepare students from all backgrounds for a fast-changing world. The first is to set clear, common standards for all students through a revised and improved curriculum. The second priority is to build capacity to reliably assess students across the full range of competencies needed for success in life and in learning. Third, Thailand needs to develop a holistic strategy to prepare teachers and school leaders to deliver education reform, including implementing the revised curriculum, and to tackle teaching shortages in the most deprived areas. The final challenge is to create a comprehensive information and communications technology strategy to equip all Thailand’s schools, teachers and students for the 21st century.

    Thailand Electricity Security Assessment

    Thailand’s remarkable social and economic development since the 1970s has resulted in a steep and steady
    increase in energy consumption and, as a consequence, a rising dependency on imported fuels and associated
    exposure to international commodity prices. Electricity demand is currently concentrated in the Bangkok
    metropolitan area and driven by a large industrial and manufacturing base and significant amounts of tourism.
    But Thailand is a growing country with a large middle class, and a structural transition may change the nature
    and shape of electricity demand.Thai energy policy is driven by three pillars: security, affordability and environmental sustainability. Concerns
    about fuel diversity underlie all three pillars and as a result are major factors in long-term plans for power
    generation. Thailand’s electricity sector is at a turning point similar to that of many International Energy Agency
    (IEA) member countries, as it transitions to low-carbon power sources. Thailand must decide how to finance
    massive investments in new generation assets, transmission and distribution networks, as well as the steps to
    improve system operations and scale up energy efficiency.Partner Country Series – Thailand Electricity Security Assessment 2016 analyses the challenges the country faces,
    including how regulatory and market arrangements can adapt to best realise the opportunities from potentially
    disruptive distributed resources like wind and solar photovoltaics. This study draws on IEA member countries’
    experiences as well as Agency analysis to recommend policy improvements for a more secure and sustainable
    electricity sector in Thailand.
