Overview: Sitanon Jesdapipat has had over two decades of teaching and research experience in natural resources, environmental economics, climate change policy and research methods, at the undergraduate and graduate levels. He took early retirement from Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, in 2006. Serving on various committees, he also services Thai governments and international organizations such as WTO, UN organizations, ADB and selected NGOs, in the technical advisor capacity, the experience which enables him to have a deep understanding of the government and non-government sectors. He also roots his role at the regional level, and at the local community level, to bridge the gap between policy formulation and reality on the ground. Being presently an independent consultant and Vice Dean for International Affairs, at the College of Social Innovation, Rangsit University, Thailand, he aims to use his knowledge and experience to improve policy formulation—and to bring experience back to improving upon universities’ roles in the society. His most recent achievement includes a draft Cambodian Climate Change Strategic Plan and an ADB report on Thailand development. He is now working on a Climate Change Strategic Adaptation Plan for Eastern Region of Thailand.
