The British Council, together with the Thailand Research Fund, is supporting this international workshop through the Researcher Links Programme. This workshop will for the first time enable numerous young researchers and academics from both UK and Thailand to meet and brainstorm on the topic of groundwater resilience - an issue critical for adaptation to climate change and human development. The workshop is co-convened by UCL IRDR and King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (KMITL), Thailand. Dr Shamsudduha is leading the UK team of 16 young researchers and academics from 10 different universities across the UK. Associate Professor, Dr. Uma Seeboonruang is leading the Thai team of 24 scientists, several early career researchers and a cohort of graduate students from across Thailand. This workshop aims at establishing a long-lasting research collaboration and network between UCL and KMITL and other Thai research institutes.
