Addressing the causes of Thailand’s largest invisible killer: air pollution

Air pollution in Thailand ranks amongst the worst in the world, accounting for over 32,200 premature deaths in 2019 and reducing average life expectancy by two years. In this seminar, SEI Asia’s Diane Archer and other experts will examine the three major sources of air pollution in Thailand: vehicular emissions, agricultural emissions and industrial emissions.

4 August 2022 at 17:00 BKK

ending at 18:30 BKK

Thailand’s incomplete decentralization, administrative fragmentation, prioritization of economic growth and protection of vested business interests have created numerous barriers to improve the governance of the air. New legislation is needed to overcome these barriers and protect socio-economically marginalized citizens who are disproportionately vulnerable to the adverse effects of air pollution.

The seminar will be held on 4 August 2022, 5.00-6.30 pm at SEA Junction.
