Industrial pollution in Thailand can be deadly, but a new court ruling which has suspended 76 polluting projects is costing jobs and billions in lost revenue. On this episode of 101 East, we ask if Thailand can strike a balance between big business and the environment.
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 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.

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 ...

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.
