Chiang Rai residents joined state officials from both Thailand and Myanmar on Friday (January 24) clearing firebreaks in the woods in the hope of curbing wildfires and PM 2.5 dust pollution.

 

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa was on hand for the initial “rehearsal” in Ban Chalo in Mae Fah Luang district and presented participants with the gear they needed.

“Forest fires and smog in the North occur every year during the dry season because farmers clear-burn crop fields to prepare the next planting,” Varawut said.

 

“The government has since 2015 placed a high priority on preventing these problems by cooperating with the relevant authorities on action plans that bring in all sectors to try and solve the problems at their origin.”

It ain't rocket scienc

Today cheap Drones can spot exactly where or offer rewards?

Perhpas time for few more BMWs with smoke detectors and whiff inspectors

 

Strong deterrents seem to work when carrots fail

I'm sure if confiscated, cash, vehicles,ID cards and ultimately land the message would spread.

Meantime provide incentives to weed manually or mechanically

Of course won't stop smoke from neighbouring nations.
