• 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 ...

  • 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...

  • Thailand Training Camp: The Team Environment at Khongsittha

    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 ...
