A Review and Study of Social Carrying Capacity Assessment in Khao Lak, Phang Nga Province and Phi Phi Island, Krabi Province, Thailand

Tourism is one of the major sources of foreign revenue for Thailand, and the two research locations are popular tourist destinations. This project is reviewing and assessing the social carrying capacity (SCC) of Khao Lak in Phang Nga province and Phi Phi island in Krabi province of Thailand.

SEI is examining the relationship between tourism and ecologically sensitive areas in order to develop measures to avoid exceeding social carrying capacity.

SEI's work is identifying the maximum number of visitors that can be tolerated, developing guidelines for sustainable ecotourism, and building capacity among partners to encourage sustainable ecotourism.
