SIPA work in Thailand

As Thailand revises its draft 13th National Economic and Social Development Plan (NESDP) for 2023-2027 to support its Climate Change Master Plan (CCMP) 2015-2050 and its long-term National Strategy 2018-2037, there is a unique opportunity to help direct investments towards more sustainable energy, transport and industry infrastructure projects. Furthermore, the Thai government is presently working on a long-term strategy. Approved projects should not only support economic growth and job creation in the short term, but also assist the transition towards a more resilient, less emissions-intensive economic model that is compatible with the Paris Agreement and the SDGs in the long term.

SIPA’s activities in Thailand related to infrastructure planning and evaluation include a pilot multidimensional assessment of a major infrastructure project (implemented by IISD) and climate-resilient planning and design guidelines for targeted transport projects (UNDP). Sectoral work in Thailand focuses on developing a regional study on improving low-carbon transport and logistics connectivity (ITF). SIPA includes an array of capacity development activities, including to promote responsible business conduct (RBC) and due diligence (OECD).
