legislation type Executive
Adaptation Framework
Mitigation Framework
Passed in 2016
The National Climate Change Master Plan (2015 -2050) is designed to help Thailand achieve sustainable low carbon growth and climate change resilience by 2050, by following the below missions:

  • "Building climate resilience into national development policy by integrating directions and measures in all sectors at both national and sub-national levels to ensure country's adaptability to climate change;

  • Creating mechanisms to reduce GHG emissions, and leading to sustainable low carbon growth;

  • Building readiness of master plan implementation by enhancing potential and awareness of all development partners; and

  • Developing database, knowledge, and technology to support climate change adaptation and sustainable low carbon growth" (Missions).

 To achieve the objectives, the National Climate Change Master Plan (2015 -2050) specifies a set of mitigation, adaptation and capacity building targets.
 Short-Term (2016) targets include:

  1. Develop medium- and long-term GHG emission reduction targets and prepare roadmaps for implementation by sector (including vulnerability maps, Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions roadmap, and Measurement, Reporting, and Verification mechanism);

  1. Establish domestic incentive mechanism, using both legal and economic measures to encourage low carbon development.

 Medium-Term (2020) targets include:

  1. Reduce GHG emissions from energy and transport sectors by 7-20 per cent by 2021 compared to 2005 (subject to level of international support);

  1. By 2021, supply at least 25 per cent of energy consumed from renewable energy sources;

  1. Increase ratio of municipalities with more than 10 m2 of green space per capita.


 Long-Term (2020-2050) targets include:

  1. By 2030 reduce energy intensity by at least 25 per cent compared to a business as usual scenario;

  1. Increase proportion of trips made by public transport;

  1. Reduce proportion of GHG emissions from land transport;

  1. Increase proportion of investment in low carbon and environmental friendly industries;

  1. Reduce open waste dumping area;

  1. Reduce proportion of open burning in agriculture areas;

  1. Reduce carbon intensity of the economy.
