    Introduction: The Vimanmek Mansion is a former royal palace in Bangkok, Thailand. It is located in the Dusit Palace complex,
                           nearby Dusit Zoo in Dusit district. Vimanmek Mansion was built in 1900 by King Rama V by having the Munthatu
                           Rattanaroj Residence in Chuthathuj Rachathan at Ko Sichang, Chonburi, dismantled and reassembled in Dusit
                           Garden. The celebration for the completion of Vimanmek Mansion was held on March 27, 1901. It was used as a
                           royal palace by King Rama V for five years until the completion of Amphorn Satharn Villa in 1906. In 1932,
                           Vimanmek Mansion was used only as a storage place of the Bureau of the Royal Household. In 1982 Queen Sirikit
                           asked permission of King Rama IX to renovate Vimanmek Mansion for use as a museum to commemorate King
                           Rama V by displaying his photographs, personal art and handicrafts, and to serve as a showcase of the Thai
                           national heritage. The palace is now a major tourist attraction and is the world's largest golden teakwood
                           mansion.

Every day, information created in the world of cyberspace increases unexpectedly, but a system to help people efficiently retrieve data and make best use of it is not yet developed, making significant information available online hard to retrieve and probably loss by time.

 

Realizing the importance of information as the country’s valuable assets, the National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) under the National Science and Technology Development  Agency has initiated a project called Digitized Thailand (DT) to accumulate the country’s vital information to build up the largest digital archive.

 

The project also involves the development of the national intellectual infrastructure, which allows Thai people to access enormous knowledge at anytime anywhere through the Internet network.

 

Digitized Thailand is NECTEC’s flagship project to demonstrate the integration of technology developments. It goal is to establish a prominent digital information infrastructure and a new information service platform that will eventually be developed into the national “intelligent” knowledge center.

Archaeological Sites and Evidence of Maritime Buddhism in South India
D. DAYALAN, Archaeological Survey of India

The primary topic for this workshop is Maritime Buddhism in a broad sense. It includes information on Buddhism in South and Southeast Asia, documentation of the travels of Buddhist pilgrims, trade and shipping, shipwrecks, archaeology, trade routes, trade winds, monsoons, and historic climate change. In addition, related Religious Atlas work and digital Buddhist resources will be discussed. 


The ECAI project on Maritime Buddhism plans to support mapping of Maritime Buddhist sites and shipwrecks and build a method to integrate existing data into an interactive map interface.


For the Friday sessions we are inviting the workshop participants to present results and status reports of related work.  The Saturday session will include continuation of research reports, hands on demonstrations, and concrete planning: outlining the research agenda, identifying appropriate data, data collection, fundraising, and collaborative working plans.  

To present the study of palaeo-environment through scientific research and the natural resource management of prehistoric people. For obtaining information on palaeo-environment, we used two case studies of plant evidence from the Holocene in Thailand. Dendrochronology was applied to teak log in order to investigate environmental changes, presenting by Associate Professor Dr. Natsuda Pumijumnong, Faculty of Environment and Resource Studies, Mahidol University. Another case study was the application of palynology to palaeo-mangrove sediments in order to investigate phyto-geographical changes during the Holocene and how the changes affect to human settlement in the area of the Lower Central Plain, presenting by Trongjai Hutangkura, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre (SAC). In case of the Natural Resource Management of prehistoric people, Assistant Professor Chawalit Khaokhiew, Faculty of Archaeology, Silpakorn University, will present a case study from an archaeological site in Southern Thailand, implying how prehistoric people managed the use of natural resource from both sides of the sea, the Andaman and the Gulf of Thailand.

Discussion

The session discusses several attempts on climate change adaptation including conducting vulnerability assessment, long-term weather forecasting model, local weather forecasting network, sustainable farming models and adaptation techniques, and financial schemes for climate change adaptation.

The preliminary research findings show high potential of using sustainable agriculture and its techniques to cope with higher weather fluctuations and, at the same time, reducing greenhouse gases emission both through the reduction of fossil-based inputs and the biomass accumulation in agro-forestry practices. Moreover, climate change adaptation can also bring several opportunities for community economic development, including reducing input costs, diversifying risks, and gaining more income.

Climate Changes and Water Resources in Taiwan History

This session consists of three papers dealing with Climate Change and Disaster management. The papers focus on the climate change situation of the disaster trigger and the adaptation that utilize to manage the risk. Also, the best practice sharing will be enhanced the governance or related for managing climate change risks, and hopefully, to reduce the vulnerability to those risk.

This session is comprised of three papers concerning climate change adaptation in communities by using water resource management. The papers will be emphasized on the means of community development on managing water resources by combining local wisdom and IT skills together in order to create knowledge that is the most valuable and relevant to the community's need as well as encouraging people to realize the ownership of their own community, which will brought about sustainable development. Besides, this integrated knowledge can be extended to other development such as forest conservation, herb database, check dam construction and so on. As a result, all of these factors can also help generate the climate change adaptation to the communities.

The croplands and forests that occupy 60 percent of the Earth’s surface are progressively being exposed to threats from increased climatic variability and, in the longer run, to climate change. This session includes three papers concerning the particular need of adaptation, water resources, agriculture which affected by drought and desertification, as well as floods. The climate change also distributes patterns of plant diseases and pests.

The Regional Climate Change Adaptation Knowledge Platform for Asia
(or Adaptation Knowledge Platform or AKP) seeks to facilitate climate change adaptation at local, national and regional levels and to strengthen adaptive capacity of countries in South and South East Asian countries, while bridging existing and emerging networks and knowledge. It was established in 2009 with a financial support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and initial partners are the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the Swedish Environment Secretariat for Asia (SENSA), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UNEP/Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (RRC.AP).

 

The AKP is intended to support countries in the Asia region to strengthen their capabilities to introduce effective adaptation measures. This includes both at the national level, in terms of creating an enabling policy, regulatory, planning and budgeting environment for the adoption of adaptation measures, and at a sub-national and local level where most adaptation activities would actually be implemented. The AKP and its partners have conducted the scoping assessment to identify current status of key actors, mechanism, policy, the core of all adaptation initiatives, state of knowledge and needs in contributing to capacity relating to climate change and its adaptation in thirteen countries (Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines and Sri Lanka).

 

This session will be devoted to present on the insight findings from all scoping assessment studies and synthesize them with a focus on:

 

1.Key area (sectors/geographical location, social groups) of concerns- by
stakeholders Existing mechanism for climate change adaptation work:    
strength & weakness, connection or disconnect: between national  to
local, sector to sectors,  budgeting Awareness/ knowledge gaps
and needs
2.Key area for intervention and support

3.Good examples in adaptation work

Managing Climate Changes, most countries will need technological development in establishing and strengthening linkages between the science and technology community and economic and social policy makers.  Developing countries, with limited resources and large technology development gap, must assess and prioritize such “needs” in order to utilize their resource appropriately into action and sustainability. 

 

This session will address the work done in “Climate Change Technology Needs Assessment for Thailand”,  a GEF funded UNEP project.  The project is hosted by National Science and Technology and Innovation Policy Office (STI) with many contributing agencies and experts in Thailand.  The prime objective were to to identify Thailand's priorities in technology development and sustainable outcome for Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation.  Four high-impact sector are set as focused areas: 1) Agriculture, 2) Water Management, 3) Model, and 4) Energy. 

 

The preliminary result of identified technology priorities and projection along with suggestion for technology action plan will be presented.

Biodiversity is the term given to the variety of life on Earth.  Biodiversity is essential for the benefits the ecosystems can provide to humans and hence for human well-being. Its role goes beyond ensuring the availability of raw materials to include security, resiliency, social relations, health, freedoms and choices. People especially in developing countries are dependent on continued biodiversity and that is why governments all over the world strive to maintain and conserve it.  Among many issues of biodiversity, we chose conservation, restoration and monitoring of biodiversity as the focus of this session.  Much of the discussion of the biodiversity crisis centers on species.  The first speaker will focus on the protection of population and habitat of endangered species in an effort to restore an ecosystem to its previous biodiversity-rich state as much as possible.  The second speaker will introduce how a monitoring program on fish diversity would help support a better understanding of the Mekong freshwater ecosystem, the impact of development projects on ecosystem, as well as the improvement of management of the ecosystem.  The final speaker will present a butterfly monitoring project and database at national level and stress the importance of monitoring on tracking trends of species diversity and detecting environment change at different scales, as well as the significance of developing a database for biodiversity monitoring data.

This session uses geographic information methods and tools to uncover humanity and historical information in old maps, enhancing our understanding of the historical, cultural and environmental transformation of the studied areas depicted in old maps.

The global warming or other large scale anthropogenic disturbance might cause the degradation and changes in environmental quality, resulting in climate change and the damage and deconstruction of the function of ecosystem service. The ecosystem service provides many essential functions, benefiting human being and public health. The Symposium on “Impact of Climate Change on Public Health (IPCCPH)” will expect to increase and encourage the enthusiasm of scientists, particular to young students, to the subject. The symposium will also provide a unique chance for societies to know more about how the effect of climate change on public health and well-being.

The Symposium is under the auspices of the Academia Sinica, Taipei, taken place in Bangkok, Thailand, in October 19-21, 2011. The purpose of the symposium are (1) to promote the public awareness internationally and academic understanding of the importance of global climate change affecting public health, (2) to enhance the research level of the climate change in Asia, and (3) to promote international collaboration research on climate change, biodiversity, and public health between scientists in Asia. The convener of the symposium invited three renown scientists, two from Taiwan and one from Thailand to talk about: (1) The Impact of climate change on health vulnerability and adaptation given by distinguished Professor Huey-Jen Su (2) Impact of climate change on biodiversity and dengue fever in Taiwan given by Professor Pei-Fen Lee, and (3) Climate change and potential impact on microbiological food risk given by Professor Warapa Mahakarnchanakul. If time is allowed for another speech, the convener of symposium, Prof. C. H. Chou, will give a presentation on an overview of impact of climate change on public health and human well being.
We have recognized the limitation of 20th Century way of development, and "sustainability" becomes the key word in 21st Century. In this sense, understanding local/ indigenous/ traditional wisdom/ knowledge is the basis for it.
This session aims to discuss what is knowledge and how to describe and process knowledge especially in humanities
It is believed that climate change is one of major causes which evoke severe disasters around the world. To reduce life and property losses, information technology has been applied to empower community resilience. This session will share the experiences from three cases. Dr. Chou discusses the issue of information literacy for community disaster management. Dr. Lin analyzes land suitability for relocating habitant in debris flow prone area. Mr. Chau use GIS and cost-benefit analysis to estimate agriculture production, and propose mitigation suggestions to the communities and governments for further consideration and actions.
Though disasters such as earthquakes, floods etc. have happened repeatedly, we, people of today, conceit ourselves over our technology and forget violence of nature. "Learning from history" is said to be important, but which methods are good for digital age? As a part of this profound theme, this session aims to see methods to reconstruct past events (landscapes, disasters, environment etc.) from historical materials.
Even in the digital era, museums still play an important role and function as to preserve and maintain creative works of mankind and ancestors. According to Stephen Weil, the quality of a museum is comprised of what he calls a “four-part test”* , that is i) Purposeful, ii) Capable, iii) Effective, and iv) Efficient. Apart from the traditional exhibitions organized, performances and activities of museums, as well as authorized use of digital image, have now become a target for the four-part test to prove an achievement of the quality of museums.  Moreover, since the authorized use of digital image is a complex of related intellectual property rights and it requires the use of effective intellectual property transaction mechanism, in our seminar, we are going to invite international scholars to join, discuss, and explore the market situation and current system used by museums in Taiwan, Thailand, Europe, and USA. It is anticipated that we shall be able to find a feasible market transaction mechanism in final for management of digital collections in museums.

This session consists of three papers dealing with human adaptation to climate change and environmental change. The first paper will focus on the Chenyulan River basin in northeastern Taiwan by utilizing historical aerial photographs and maps to analyze population migration, agriculture, deforestation, and characteristics of settlement in mountainous areas, so as to trace the long-term spatial relationship and causations between human activities and natural environment. The second paper will take the serious flood occurred on August 7, 1959 in central Taiwan as a case to investigate the implications of dike construction, climate disaster, adaptation and reconstruction in the history of Taiwan. The third paper will trace the history of modern meteorological observation network established by the British at China’s treaty-ports in the late nineteenth century and the function of this network. 
Starting from the concept of knowledge investment, discussion of the session topics will revolve around the question of how to utilize diverse digital content to create knowledge assets that increase the depth and value of the library’s service to an information society.
This session includes three papers dealing with environmental history.  The first paper will investigate environmental injustice induced by industrial development since the 1960s with focuses on the spatial differentiation of industrial pollutions and the damage to vulnerable groups by resource exploitation. The second paper takes Pingtung area along the Kaoping River in southern Taiwan for a study on water pollution and parasitic diseases since the 1920s. The third paper will be presented by a scholar from Thailand or other places.

Climate change has demonstrated world-widely that human beings can never succeed in fighting against the power of nature. To preserve cultural treasures, museums nowadays make every effort to digitalize their collections not only for educational promotion or commercial application but also for sustainability of cultural assets. Virtual museums built on websites can preserve rare treasures and share with people around the world as long as internet exists whereas real museum buildings and antique collections might not last long owing to unpredictable natural attacks. Digitization of collections has been considered as one of the most vital missions in National Palace Museum (NPM) since the end of last century. More than one decade later, all fruitful results of digitization in NPM are successfully implemented in a variety of aspects, especially when people and their culture seem to be relatively fragile under the Nature’s continuous fight-back. In this session, three distinguished speakers in related fields, who are from museums in Taiwan, Thailand and Malaysia, will share their academic research and on-site experiences in terms of digitization and sustainability of cultural assets. The session intends to attract participants’ attention more on digital preservation of cultural assets through discussion from different points of view.
