Abstract

In Bangkok, Thailand, torrential downpours during monsoon season lead to flooding in the Khlong Toei slum, which prompts many health and sanitation concerns. We identified the key infrastructural contributors to flooding and created a collection of geographical maps based on our interviews, observations, and measurements in order to convey to external stakeholders the susceptibility of certain areas within the slum. Additionally, we formulated a series of recommendations to improve the waste management practices and the drainage infrastructure within the slum.
