Our international and national team members were on site at On Nut, the site of our first case study. Our vision is to work with Thai colleagues to transform an urban landfill site into a multifunctional forest and wetland park that provides recreational and environmental benefits.
Our team was pleased to join Bangkok’s Deputy Governor Professor Wisanu Subsompon, Australian Ambassador for Climate Change Kristin Tilley and project stakeholders – Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), PTT Global Chemical and Kasetsart University – on a tour of the future On Nut forest park site. Plans for the site include the urban forest, and a wetland and open water to store treated water for irrigation and detain water during flooding events.
The plan for On Nut was signed off by the Thai Steering Committee, which met for the first time in May. The steering committee comprises representatives from key government agencies.
