Sukhumbhand seeks help from Netherlands to stop coastal erosion in Bang Khunthien

BANGKOK: -- Bangkok Governor Sukhumbhand Paribatra yesterday took the Dutch ambassador to inspect the Bang Khunthien coast to seek advice from Dutch experts how to stop the coastal erosion.

Sukhumbhand flew on a police helicopter with Tjaco Theo Van Den Hout, the Dutch ambassador to Thailand, Deputy Metropolitan Police Commissioner Pol Maj Gen Phanu Kerdlarp and Traffic Police Commander Pol Maj Gen Weeraphat Tankhrisakul to inspect the coast.

Sukhumbhand said over one kilometer of the coast had been eroded by the sea tide, and the situation was worsening.

He said the Dutch ambassador promised to have Dutch experts inspect the area as soon as possible to help draft the master plan to stop the coastal erosion.

Sukhumbhand said the master plan may be completed in two or three years.

:o The best way to prevent beach erosion is the natural way. That is to NOT CUT DOWN the Mangrove forests that shield the land from storm waves, stop erosion, and also serve as a nursery for young fish, shrimp, and crabs...which provides an off-shore fishing industry when the young fish are grown. Manrove roots have ben shown to be a perfect place for young fish to hide until they grow big enough to go out into deeper water, where they become a valuable resource for local fishermrn.

But, everyone wants ther house on the beach, so Mangrove forests sre cut and cleared for ths houses. Then the storm tide has no obstruction and slams ashore, causing beach erosion.

One mangrove forest is worth a dozen manmade sea-walls....and costs a lot less to take care of.

:D
