Fellow Since 2012
Thai Water Partnership
This description of Hannarong Yaowalers's work was prepared when Hannarong Yaowalers was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2012.
In an age of continuing dam construction in Asian countries, Hannarong Yaowalers is establishing a new public understanding of wetlands, formerly perceived as wastelands, by working with local communities to establish economic incentives for conservation. Hannarong is developing participatory wetland protection in Thailand as an alternative in water management.
