Abstract—This study aims to study the needs of geographic information system and database program for supporting local ecosystem services management and policy planning in the representative areas under the Integrated Community-based Forest and Catchment Management through an Ecosystem Services Approach project (CBFCM) by using Payment for Ecosystem Services concept (PES). The research was operated by gathering information on demand from the Bureau of Policy and Strategy of Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Thailand (MNRE), and brainstorming of leaders from four representative areas which are; Mae Sa watershed area; Northern, Lam Sae Bai River Basin; North-eastern, Tha Chin watershed area; Middle and Phangan River Basin; Southern. Then, all information needs to combine with all related documents and summarize to be the guidelines for designing the GIS and database program to meet for demand of representative areas. The study found that the representative areas need GIS and database program which can be supporting the application of payment for ecosystem services mechanisms occurs in the local area of Thailand. This program can inform and publicize the PES details. Furthermore, this system can be an example model for future works and other projects.
