The Main Objectives of This Project are:
This project is based on interdisciplinary study through research design process which is done by joining hands between researchers and civil society. Cooperation network development among researchers as interdisciplinary work from those who are in institute, outside institute and civil part in concept of Thachin-Maeklong area-based concept is aimed to employ and apply body of knowledge and research process to make a change, construct social power and generate imagination for finding creative and peaceful way for natural resources development.
Group 1 : Information technology for development and database development (ISBDD)
Group 2 : Cultural revitalization and knowledge management of the Maeklong riverside community
Group 3 : Food chain development for sustainability
Group 4 : Ecosystem and water resources study for Thachin-Maeklong river basin
Group 5 : Integrative research networking for the improvement of health promotion and quality of life in communities for Thachin-Maeklong river basin
Group 6 : Strengthening management system of transdisciplinary research network of Thachin Maeklong river basins.
Group1-3 started to conduct their assignment since April, 2002 and Group 4-6 started according to strategies goals since 2003-2006. Project Proposal Phase II
In recent years with continued pressure on Thailand, the researchers network of Thachin-Maeklong have still been developed the project proposal phase II over a 5-year period (2008-2012)
The Conceptual Framework of This Proposal are

Project Proposal Phase II
Project Proposal Phase II is composed of 7 sub projects and 1 office of coordination as the following;
The holistic consequences
Detail of each individual projects show in appendix
Result from proceeding sub-project 1: Information Technology for Development and Database Development (ISBDD)
Data in Information System Base Data Development (ISBDD) compose of fundamental data such as demography, health, education socioeconomic data, natural resources and environment as well as geographic data base. These data can serve the need of concerned partner such as researchers and concerned agencies to use beneficially through internet access. Anyway, data available on internet still have to be improved for more effective while training courses have been already provided for officers in concerned agencies.
Result from proceeding sub-project 2: Cultural Revitalization and Knowledge Management of the Maeklong Riverine Community
Body of knowledge related to local wisdoms such as fishery, agriculture and local architecture can generate learning process among all concerned partners to realize on the importance of specific local wisdom of people in the river basin. For example, Leamyai learning process in Samut Songkrom province and its result on setting community learning center.
Result from proceeding sub-project 3: Food Chain Development for Sustainability
Result from the project is revealed in form of research related to food knowledge and planting. These researches mainly emphasize on safe health producing such as type of bacteria which could eliminate fungi in the process of biological ferment water, diversification for fungi which can generate plant diseases, vegetable and fruit consumption among children, intoxicated vegetable market, safe food policy and cooperation with civil sector and community on searching for alternative market for green farmer (intoxicated vegetable)
Result from proceeding the sub-project 4: Ecosystem and Water resources study for Thachin-Maeklong river basin.
This sub- project is aimed to study the surveillance network for taking care the water's quality based on community participation on conserving all cannels and rivers in study area. Also, this project tries to find body of knowledge related to water quality in terms of physical, chemical and biological aspect in order to find biological indicators such as some types of groundwater animals. Moreover, proper way for water resource utilization, diversification and accumulation of Andosulfan in canal system of Maeklong river basin as well as mathematical model designed to predict the flooding area of lower part of Maeklong river basin are strongly needed for studying.
Result from proceeding the sub-project 5: Integrative Research Networking for the Improvement of Health Promotion and Quality of Life in Communities for Thachin-Maeklong River Basin.
This sub- project is aimed to study health condition, causes, factor for health promotion and social process generated by people participation. The strengthening in these dimensions is done through many studies such as health study on Klongmai local way, a cooperative action between community people in Klongmai and researchers from Mahidol University and survey on accidents among children aged below 5 years in Aumpang sub-district, Banpeaw district, Samut Songkrom province.
Result from proceeding the sub-project 6: Strengthening Management System of Transdisciplinary Research Network of Thachin Maeklong River Basins.
This sub-project is aimed to generate research network and new blood researchers under the umbrella of interdisciplinary working. This cooperation can develop the potentiality of research team in new way of working which could employ knowledge to drive and protect problem occurring. Moreover, the cooperation would generate cooperative network among all stakeholders in governmental sector, academic institution, non-governmental organization and civil society in study area. The results are revealed in forms of having the network development process smoothly done with the network in Nakorn Pathom province as well as having new blood researchers and academics who are interested in research and development field.
