Mr. Chachrit Pocharueng is the manager of the Songkhla Community Foundation and a member of the ACCCRN Hat Yai working group. He is talking here about his role and how he used his skills to obtain lessons learnt from his work and to produce learning materials to publish. This led to an expansion of the work on building urban climate resilience in Hat Yai. Since joining the ACCCRN program and becoming part of the network that facilitates the collaboration between the public and government in exchanging information, the integrated monitoring and early warning system along the U-tapao river (upstream – midstream – downstream) has turned the city into a well known role model that is cited as the ‘Hat Yai Model’ for cities in southern Thailand facing the same threat from flooding.
