Workshop on climate change planning and budgeting for agricultural sector
The workshop was participated by four agencies namely Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP); Bureau of Budget (BOB); Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MoAC); and Office of the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB). These agencies play important roles in planning and budgeting processes at different levels.
The workshop aim to set a step for establishing common understanding/approach to climate change planning and budgeting using agricultural pilot analyses under MoAC to be potential scaling up cases, particular for climate adaptation objectives. The key concept discussed during the workshop was the benefit approach to climate change planning and budgeting which would help related agencies to be able to use as a basis to arrive at (1) common definition of Climate Change relevant expenditure, (2) criteria for climate change prioritization, and (3) framework for climate change monitoring and evaluation.
This workshop was part of the key activities under the Project “Strengthening Thailand’s Capacity to Link Climate Policy and Public Finance”, aiming at supporting Thailand in allocating and using its public finances effectively and efficiently to achieve its objectives on climate change.
