Summary

Among the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Thailand ratified the Paris Agreement on 21 September 2016. To put forward its best efforts, the government of Thailand has committed to reducing total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions up to 25%, as reported in its Intended Nationally Ultimately, much more work needs to be done to increase the greater degree of gender and youth integration in climate policy instruments, specifically, strong political will along with effective and coherent policy.

Key Recommendations

This analysis found that there is no emphasis on the importance of youth and there is only a single reference to gender responsiveness in Thailand’s NDC. Despite having existing mechanisms for gender mainstreaming and youth development, integrating gender perspectives, and supporting youth engagement in the climate policy has encountered a number of hurdles that are largely a result of political and cultural barriers. Consequently, this token effort

creates doubt on the potential for transformational changes such as the implementation of inclusive climate policy and reducing inequalities. The following are key recommendations to the National Committee on Climate Change Policy, the NAP’s key six sectors, the Ministry of Education, and MSDHS for the improvement of future NDCs and other national climate plans:
