The government will this year focus on flood prevention and will implement measures to ensure that there will be no recurrence of last year’s great flood, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said on Saturday morning.
In her “Yingluck government meets people” talk show, Ms Yingluck said the devastating flood took place last year because the amount of runoff water was as much as 20 billion cubic metres and there was no water management plan at that time.
The government will follow His Majesty the King’s initiative on water management. The water management plan is divided into water management in upstream, middle stream and downstream areas, said the prime minister.
