- Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute (HAII)
Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute (HAII), is a public organization under Ministry of Science and Technology, Thailand. As a research and development institute on hydro and agro informatics, HAII aims to develop and apply science and technology (S&T) knowledge for agricultural and water resource management in Thailand. HAII has encouraged the community to apply S&T as the significant tools to empower local communities and upgrade their capacity in learning, sharing, and knowledge creation to achieve self-reliance, ownership, and sustainable development in Community Water Resource Management (CWRM). By connecting the community network it forms a community based river basin and CWRM plans. The success models of CWRM are replicated to others community network. Starting from 2 communities in 2003, now there are 60 communities’ mentors that expand their success to 932 community networks of 19 river basins in Thailand. The concept of CWRM is a mechanism to push forward from managing disaster to managing risk. CWRM prove to be a driven tool to reduce losses from disaster and ensure sustainability from community level to basin scale.Moreover, HAII also expand its collaboration and accomplishment on integrated water resource management nationally and internationally.
