BANGKOK (NNT) - Prior to the Cabinet’s meeting , Prime Minister and Minister of Defence Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, viewed an exhibition depicting the AirCMI haze and air pollution management system in Chiang Mai, and checked out the Pollution Control Department’s mobile air quality measurement stations.

 

The Prime Minister said the government is giving high priority to mitigating the haze and dust disaster through prevention, solutions, and the creation of awareness. The government has been performing operations such as spraying water mist and cleaning up roads and polluted areas, suppressing vehicles emitting black exhaust smoke, and launching an awareness campaign encouraging the general public to wear protective masks and refrain from outdoor activities, especially those in sensitive groups such as children, patients, and elders.

 

The office for national reform, strategy, and reconciliation has introduced the AirCMI system for dust and haze management, developed to enable an information exchange between provincial agencies related to dust and haze control, as well as using the information technology system to communicate with the general public and for effective dust management.

 

The AirCMI system provides a single command operation to support the command and operations of provincial Governors and government officials. A part of the system is the mobile application to create awareness and provide guidelines to villagers to protect themselves during poor air quality periods, and QR codes which allow visitors to scan and receive information without having to download the application.

That's kind of interesting.... I wonder if it's an app based snitch function for air pollution violators??

 

I guess the only questions would be:

--who is/are the "responsible department(s)"

--and will they bother to actually do anything in response to reports....

The app looks to be entirely TH language. If there's any EN setting in the app, I can't find it.

 

But there does appear to be a function in the app to have your mobile phone take a photo with the location/time/date info encoded and send it off to someone...in the case of fires, polluting vehicles, etc.

They could also just drive around, look what field has been burned down, ask the landoffice who owns it and go to action. Would be too damn easy...

Add........but that would defeat the purpose, e.g. common sense 🙂

Can't agree with you more.  Right on target.  While I have lived in Thailand for 9 years, I still find this kind of BS amazes me.  (By BS I mean all these ridiculous policies and actions we have seen over and over related to the pollution, and not one of them going to a major source of the pollution: the fires and people lighting them (at least within the borders of Thailand).  What a farce.  If it wasn't pertaining to such a serious issue, it would be comical.



It seems that Thai officials rather solve problems by procuring than by doing. There is no money in doing. There is money to be made by purchasing however.

 

Think about those water sprayers. Expensive equipment you know!! I'm sure there were thorough negotiations done before they were purchased, if you know what I mean.


Just speculating obviously. 

Personally, I would've freed up budget to assign task forces, whose sole responsibility it was to patrol their sector for illegal burning. No money in that.
