Description of RCE and Geographic Region:

RCE TrangĀ is situated in a hilly region on the southwestern coast of Thailand. Trang is well-forested and has two conserved areas. Rubber and palm oil cultivation are the major agricultural activities and fishing brings in revenue for the coastal population. Population increases from migration is one of the primary challenges the region faces, as it places added pressure on the environment and destroys natural resources. The region is also working to conserve its indigenous traditions and cultures, which are battling against modernization.
