“Phuket and Wilailuck University have been assigned to undertake a management plan regarding Phuket’s integrated water resources development. We need to ascertain the areas which are prone to flooding and drought and to ensure that we are able to find ways of solving the problems so that they do not affect the people living in those areas.

“An integrated plan to solve the problem of flooding and drought in the area is being implemented with cooperation from relevant Government Departments, Provincial and local governments, who are also to provide a database of budget requirements.”
