Humans are not the only living beings that need to be loved. Animals, trees, air and water are all things in which we can show our love and care, including “water”.
SCG’s ' SCG Conserving Water Campaign: Raknam…From the mountains to the mighty rivers ' project is an initiative with an aim to follow the footsteps of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in conserving water resources, from Check Dams in the forests with water sources, Water Ponds that will hold the water to be used in the dry season, water retention areas or Kam Ling enable farmers to utilize water for agriculture, to taking care of downstream areas by creating Fish Homes for fish and sea creatures to dwell.
SCG believes that in order to sustainably develop the environment, the private sector, the governmental organization in charge of each community, and the local community must join hands to restore abundance back to nature. We believe that our dedication and our love for water will enable communities to develop their quality of life, increase their agricultural crops, make more income and become stronger and more independent in a sustainable manner. We also hope that this project will inspire locals in the community to become more self-reliant and teach the younger generation about water management.
Everyone is a part of the journey of water, whether they are communities or cities, because the course of water connects people from all walks of life, from upstream, midstream, to downstream. 'Raknam…From the mountains to the mighty rivers' project means that everyone must join together to conserve water sustainably from upstream to downstream. For over 10 years, SCG has developed the ' Raknam…From the mountains to the mighty rivers ' water management project with the aim to follow the footsteps of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in conserving water resources from upstream, midstream, to downstream by enabling locals to understand the process of water management in each area and promoting common ownership for locals. From building check dams n the forests that had water sources to return ecological balance that can solve issues from dry and flood seasons, sending the water to ponds that will hold the water or to water retention areas through the Kam Ling system built to enable farmers to utilize water for agriculture, while taking care and restoring ocean ecology by creating fish homes for fish and sea creatures to dwell as well as nurture smaller animals with the objective of restoring abundance to Thai oceans.
We are determined to enable communities to develop their quality of life, increase their agricultural crops, make more income and become stronger and more independent in a sustainable manner while also inspiring the younger generation to become more aware of water management for all lives to live in harmony sustainably.
