Acknowledgments, Once again we have been privileged to participate in a remarkable international educational partnership. between Chulalongkorn University Bangkok and the University of California Berkeley Together ten. Chulalongkorn students and ten Berkeley students with the participation of the community of the. island of Koh Lanta Yai created this document It makes clear the options for the future development. of the island as a home to local people and as a tourist destination The balancing of livelihood and. environment is global question but it is answered in local decisions and local places Our intent in this. document is to make the choices attending the residents and leaders of Koh Lanta Yai evident and to. reshape the future of the island to continue to be a healthy sustaining home to its residents supported. by carefully considered tourism, This project is the second of three collaborative efforts focused on the Krabi Province of Thailand. Through the foresight and commitment of its President Khun Chote Soponpanich the Thai Public Policy. Foundation has provided the leadership and extraordinary support in these efforts to mutual cross. cultural learning and environmental sustainability We were fortunate that Khun Pissimai Khandobee. advisor to the Foundation was an indefatigable participant and facilitator in all phases of the project. and brought a deft touch to the many aspects of logistics translation and field research. At Berkeley Professor David Dowall of the Department of City and Regional Planning and Director. of the Institute of Urban and Regional Development initiated the University of California side of the. project From two decades of working his shared wisdom in Thailand brought the project to fruition. and conclusion The Institute and the Beatrix Jones Farrand Fund of the Department of Landscape. Architecture and Environmental Planning supported the project providing for faculty and student travel. Janet Dawson of the Institute seamlessly coordinated the Berkeley logistics. The faculty of Chulalongkorn University was of course integral to this undertaking Dean Amara Pongsapich. of the Faculty of Political Science and Dean Lersom Sthapitanonda of the Faculty of Architecture provided. a larger institutional context for the project and made the resources of the University generously available. to the studio Professor Suwattana Thadaniti Director of the Social Science Research Institute and Dr. Narumon Arunotha its Deputy Director for Research and International Relations participated in forming. the project and gave insight into the particular cultural context in which we worked. Professor Siriwan Silapacharanan of the Department Urban and Regional Planning and Lecturer Pitch. Pongsawat of the Department of Government co directed the studio Without their effective energetic. and insightful guidance the project simply would not have been possible The Chair of the Landscape. Architecture Department Professor Angsana Boonyob has provided careful critiques of our work in. Bangkok Lecturer Danai Thaitakoo of the Department of Landscape Architecture was essential to the. field research in Koh Lanta Yai and invaluably shared his profound understanding of the Thai environment. We have been honored with such exceptional partners and we look forward with enthusiasm to future. collaborations,Louise A Mozingo,Associate Professor.
