Rehabilitation of Koh Phra Thong  has primarily
taken the form of technical support. IUCN aims to
enable SDC s rehabilitation activities to incorporate
environmental and socio economic information in
development activities. These have been carried
out through a rapid environmental assessment to
identify the critical habitats and land use patterns
on the island to influence the decision making
process. IUCN has also been involved in a rapid
socio economic and needs assessment necessary
to provide a strategy for livelihoods improvements
on the island.
 Counting the Environmental Costs of Natural

aims to convince policy makers of the need to invest
in natural resource rehabilitation and management
as an integral part of the development agenda. The
goal of this project is to economically evaluate and
articulate tsunami related damage to natural resources
in selected sites within Thailand s affected provinces
and increase awareness and inform decision making
on coastal zone natural resource rehabilitation and
management in tsunami affected areas.
