RECONECT aims to reduce hydro-meteorological risk with Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) which demonstrates the balance of People-Water-Nature.

During the meeting, HII, as the international collaborators, presented Community Resource Water Management in Rangsit, Chao Phraya basin. This area can restore the canal system in Khlong 8-9-10 (Canal 8-9-10) by NBS measure which is the goal of the project.

Furthermore, the HII team has participated in the “Kick-off meeting with Co-Production & Reflexive Monitoring” which is an in-depth analysis of the case study area and its operational process. The participants had exchanged their views and attitudes with various countries. The outcome from this activity can be developed as a guideline for the future development of HII.
