Project details

Funding Body: Asia Urbs - EuropeAid

Dates: 2002 - 2004

Project context: http://ec.europa.eu/europeaid/where/asia/regional-cooperation/index_en.htm

Project summary

This project reviewed and assessed the air quality in the three metropolitan cities in order to identify the extent of air pollution problems and the subsequent actions that needed to be taken.

As a result, partners produced best practice guidance notes and an action plan for improving both air quality and air quality management. Training and study visits were organised for local authority officials as a means of strengthening the Environmental Quality Management and Control Division of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, who are gradually taking on increasing Air Quality Management responsibilities from the national Government's Pollution Control Department
