From January 2017, the Thailand Research Fund (TRF), through the Research Coordination for SDGs (SDG Move), has granted research funding for 12 projects, with the bifocal objectives of exploring the status of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Goal 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16, in the context of Thailand, and analysing economic, social, and legal potentials that can assist the country in achieving SDGs. After four months, TRF arranged a forum that allows researchers of these projects to present their intermediate findings. This forum was intended to be a collaborative platform to encourage meaningful interactions between researchers and experts from various disciplines, especially in the forms of feedbacks and additional information, which can be used to improve the quality of the final reports.
On 1st May 2017, Thailand Research Fund in collaboration with SDG Move organise a forum for the intermediate presentation of the “Status Survey for 12 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Thailand and the Elements that Can Support the Country in Achieving SDGs.
The forum was very successful, judging from the number of participants and the amount of discussions throughout the day. Additionally, we would like to thank students from Thammasat University of their amazing supports.
We will update the outcomes of the forum accordingly.
