    The Office of the Royal Development Projects Board and the Pa Sak River Basin Development Project Committee and its seven Sub-Committees cooperated together in the planning and implementation of the Pa Sak River Basin Development Project. We believe that this project can be considered a model in successfully integrating personnel from government agencies, academic institutions and non-governmental organizations to resolve the many issues encountered in solving problems of implementing developmen t projects. We believe it to contain an experience and an understanding of approach of significance to other countries. This publication is a result of the collective efforts of the Royal Irrigation Department and the FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific. It is aimed at creating public awareness of the benefits envisaged in the project towards sustainable agricultural development in Thailand.
