• Poverty-Environment Initiative in Nan, Thailand (English subtitles)

    The pristine forest of Nan has been a source of pride and food for the Nan people for generations. In the last decade, widespread contract maize farming has taken over the mountainous landscape, replacing the dense forest. Fertilizers and pesticide used for this intensive cash-crop are rapidly deteriorating environmental quality. The province that was once self-sufficient in food production has now to import large amounts of food. The Poverty-Environment Initiative provides support to the PAO, local communities, Provincial government and private stakeholders to identify alternative livelihood options that minimize the environmental damage caused by corn farming.

  • Assignment Asia: Thailand's tourism woes

    Thailand attracts more than 30 million visitors every year to its white-sand beaches, coral reefs, and other scenic spots. In a country whose economy has faltered in recent times, tourism is a consistent success story. But experts say Thailand's environment is already paying a steep price. Beaches are overcrowded, coral destroyed, and dump sites filled to the brim with trash. Martin Lowe visits islands down the country's south to investigate the impact of unbridled tourism.

  • The Poverty-Environment Initiative in Thailand

    In the last decades, Thailand has achieved remarkable economic growth, but this has brought undesirable social and environmental impacts. Rising per capita consumption, industrialization and the intensification of agriculture has placed enormous strain on the natural resources base. The impact of this environmental degradation has particularly affected poor women and men, who rely more on the natural environment for sustenance, livelihood and general wellbeing. The Poverty-Environment Initiative focuses on reducing poverty and increasing well-being of poor and vulnerable groups by supporting greener and more inclusive development plans and budgets.Led by the Ministry of Interior, PEI Thailand works in close partnership with other partners including the Ministry of Natural Resources and ...

  • Poverty-Environment Initiative in Thailand, Khon Kaen Province (Thai)

    Nam Pong River is the lifeblood of Khon Kaen serving agriculture, industry and households. But expanding cash crops like maize and sugar, and factories for pulp and paper, sugar and fertilizer have caused extensive land use change and polluted the river. In addition, recent policies to promote crop based ethanol without assessing the carrying capacity of the river will likely strain the ecosystem, to the limit. The Poverty-Environment Initiative will assist local people, the Regional Environmental Office, Khon Kaen Provincial Government and private stakeholders to assess the river's carrying capacity and different land use options to improve physical and economic planning.

  • Impact Of Tourism: Thailand

    http://www.tvchoice.uk.com - 25 mins, 2003 Beautiful beaches, wonderful scenery and friendly people — Thailand seems the ideal tourist destination. But what don't they tell you in the holiday brochure? The Thai tourist authority is pushing "ecotourism", which, in theory at least, doesn't damage the environment. Ecotourists take rafts down river, ride elephants in lush green spaces, visit Buddhist temples and tribal hill people whose lifestyles haven't changed for hundreds of years. But critics say the hill people are treated like "human zoos". There are worries, too, about cruelty to elephants. But the most notorious problem is sex tourism - which includes men, women and children. The Thai economy is now critically dependent of tourism spending - but how much has been lost in the rush...

    English/Nat A three-day conference aimed at improving environmental protection in South East Asia has opened in the Thai capital Bangkok. Delegates from across the region have been joined by environmental lawyers from the United States to help find a solution for some of the problems facing the world's fastest- growing economic zone. With the conference centred in the congested city of Bangkok delegates did not have to travel far to see some of the consequences of rapid economic growth without tough environmental laws. As Bangkok boomed, entire neighbourhoods were haphazardly built outside the law. In a keynote speech to the conference Thailand's former Prime Minister conceded that city dwellers in the region have paid a high price for the economic growth in which they ...

    The training environment and, more importantly, the team environment of Khongsittha is unlike anything you will experience. There is a bond found when people push each other through hardship. This bond, through the blood, sweat, and tears of training, creates a family. A family isn't just a group who can push together, they are a team who can laugh together and are as interested in raising each other up as they are in raising themselves. The family you'll find at Khongsittha is one of the greatest things about Thailand Training Camp, but it is one of many great things. Besides laughing together with your brothers and sisters in arms, you get to meet your heroes. Thailand Training Camp is a chance to shake hands and perhaps even to exchange them with the legends and greatest fighters of ...

English/Nat A three-day conference aimed at improving environmental protection in South East Asia has opened in the Thai capital Bangkok. Delegates from across the region have been joined by environmental lawyers from the United States to help find a solution for some of the problems facing the world's fastest- growing economic zone. With the conference centred in the congested city of Bangkok delegates did not have to travel far to see some of the consequences of rapid economic growth without tough environmental laws. As Bangkok boomed, entire neighbourhoods were haphazardly built outside the law. In a keynote speech to the conference Thailand's former Prime Minister conceded that city dwellers in the region have paid a high price for the economic growth in which they share. SOUNDBITE: (English) "It is undeniable that one of the side-effects of rapid economic growth in South Asia has been the emergence of vast, largely unplanned, urban conurbations. The haphazard way in which it has developed in places like Bangkok, Manila and Jakarta is contributing to worsening traffic chaos, air and water pollution and a general reduction in the quality of life." SUPER CAPTION: Anand Panyarachun, Former Prime Minister of Thailand With the involvement of leading American environmental lawyers, the conference hopes to persuade policy-makers to enforce environmental law. But for all its faults some claim the economic growth that brings such chaos also brings better education and eventually a more environmentally-aware public. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Yes. Economic well-being has the effect of worsening environmental problems, but also of providing public support for the environment and support for environmental law and an improved environment." SUPER CAPTION: Michelle B. Corash, American Environmental Lawyer Many seasoned environmental lawyers from the US believe less developed South East Asian countries like Cambodia and Burma have an opportunity to avoid the environmental devastation that neighbours like Thailand have already endured. SOUNDBITE: (English) "They have seen what is happened to the Thai environment as the Thai economy boomed and they now wish to avoid the disadvantages of economic growth. We hear people talking about environmental law and protection in Cambodia well ahead of the time that countries like Indonesia and Thailand touched on such issues in their economic development." SUPER CAPTION: Michelle B. Corash, American Environmental Lawyer When the conference concludes on Friday it hopes to offer South East Asian governments firm proposals for strengthening their environmental laws, with lessons from neighbours and the United States.
