Where: Thailand

What: Developing Technical Skills

We delivered technical assistance and training in the form of seminars, workshops and on-site visits to strengthen the environmental and social management capabilities of Thai environmental agencies. The implementation of this initiative began in January 1995 and was completed in 1997. This program consisted of nine different training seminars on various environmental aspects focusing on:

  • Environmental Guidelines
  • Environmental Data Management System
  • Involuntary Resettlement
  • Health Hazards for Employees at Site Levels
  • Laboratory Design
  • Air Quality Monitoring and Modelling
  • Ash Utilisation
  • Renewable Energies – Promotion of Solar Energy

In addition, staff of the relevant departments of the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment (MOSTE) of Thailand, as well as the national utility (EGAT), travelled to GSEP members’ countries for technical visits on a variety of subjects. These visits were made possible through financing from the World Environment Centre.

The managers of the different agencies expressed their satisfaction with the content of the technical assistance and training activities as it proved useful for their staff to gain technical knowledge and confidence in their work. The MOSTE agencies subsequently applied for additional assistance on topics related to air pollution
