Sustainable Development of Common - Pool Resources in Ban Don Bay, Thailand
Type : AAMR

The research team has introduced the concept of Ostrom to the sustainable development of
common-pool resources in Ban Don Bay, Surat Thani province. There are mainly mangrove
forest and fishery resources to be found in the context of the mangrove forest area, and the
operation of Ban Don Bay Conservation Network. Samples were collected from six districts
in Ban Don Bay. The purpose was to find the potential for common-pool resources
management of the mangrove forest. The results were as follows: The Conservation Network
in Ban Don Bay does not have rules, regulations or norms to be the same standard in the
areas of Ban Don Bay. However, a combination of members of the resource conservation
group in the Ban Don Bay area drive activities related to resource conservation. Design
principles have only 4 aspects that are consistent: 1) Congruence, 2) Collective Choice
Arrangements, 3) Conflict Resolution Mechanisms, and 4) Nested Enterprises are used to
manage multiple organizations. Ecological society factors that are important to the
participatory resource management of the Ban Don Bay area consists of five factors as
follows: 1) Resource System Factor, 2) Outcomes factor, 3) Resource unit factor, 4)
Interactions factor, and 5) Related ecosystems factor. The development of resource
management in Ban Don Bay area is participatory. The community needs to manage their
resources in a participatory environment including reliable information, conflict resolution
management, management of compliance with the rules of the community, provision of
infrastructure, and adaptation to the changes that have taken place including the community
organization network to conserve the mangrove forest, Ban Don Bay. Rules should be
developed to conserve the mangrove forest of Ban Don Bay to the same standard for
sustainable resource management.
