The Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership (GSEP), in collaboration with the World Bank, the Ministry of Science, Technology an Environment (MOSTE) of the Royal Thai Government and the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) completed the program entitled "Strengthening Environmental Institutions" in 1997. Further to this first GSEP activity, the agencies of the MOSTE and EGAT expressed a desire for assistance on more specific topics, mainly related to air pollution.

A fact-finding mission took place in May 2000 to reassess the needs of the Thai counterparts. The following seven tasks were identified and agreed upon by the Thai authorities and the Partnership:

  1. Environmental control technologies
  2. Air quality monitoring systems
  3. Air quality modeling
  4. Air quality policies and regulations
  5. Acid deposition
  6. Public Involvement
  7. Noise and vibrations

All of the workshops and technical exchanges were held with great success on the following dates:
