Within this context, we at the University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center (CRC) and our counterparts in the Thailand Office of the National Environment Board (ONEB) were asked by the US Agency for International Development and the government of Thailand to initiate a coastal management program.
To gain experience in the impediments to effective resource management, CRC and ONEB began a pilot project in 1987 on Phuket (pronounced pooket) Island to mobilize both private and public support to implement meaningful coastal management initiatives.
By the summer of 1989, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, local dive clubs, and nongovernment organizations in Surathani and Chomporn provinces were requesting ONEB assistance for installing mooring buoys and other forms of coral reef protection.
