Greenpeace activists and elephants walk through the rice fields of Chacheongsao, on the 12th day of the Chang(e) Caravan into Bangpakong district where the group will later hold focus group discussions with community representatives on climate change effects on agriculture, fisheries and coastal erosion. Climate change is already affecting the Bangpakong River Basin, one of Thailand’s productive agricultural regions with impacts such as flooding, drought, saltwater intrusion, and coastal erosion taking their toll on communities. The Chang(e) Caravan, a people’s caravan for change passing through Thailand’s climate change impacted areas aims to gather support in its call for world leaders, particularly United States President Barack Obama, to enact an ambitious, fair and binding climate deal this December in Copenhagen, and to make available necessary funds to protect Southeast Asia’s natural forests, to ensure the future of the region, its biodiversity and its people.
