Community Awareness of Forest Resource Utilization in the Upper Mae Sa Watershed


Supranee Suwanmalee and Nuchanata Mungkung


This study examined the level of community awareness of forest resource utilization in the upper Mae Sa Watershed, Chiang Mai Province, using the forest resource utilization awareness scale. It included the investigation of factors affecting the forest resource utilization awareness using path analysis. The results show that both indigenous Thai people and Hmong people (an ethnic group in the mountainous northern regions of Thailand) had a moderate level of forest resource utilization awareness. Meanwhile, the path analysis shows that the Hmong’s knowledge of forest resource directly affected their awareness, at the statistical confidence level of 95 percent. For the indigenous Thais, their knowledge of forest resource and attendance of forest activities directly affected their awareness, at the confidence level of 99 percent.
