Thorny Issues Ahead of COP28

Media Dialogue Forum 5 of 2023

The achievement of the goal to keep the world's temperature below 2° C, and ideally below 1.5° C, requires that countries cut Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions at least 45% below 2019 levels by 2030. Although advances have been made in many fronts, the realization of that goal remains an uphill battle which requires international cooperation to tackle. Bangkok Tribune's 5th Dialogue Forum invites us to hear from the experts and look ahead to the key issues facing the negation rounds at the COP28 in Dubai this year.

Seminar

Approaching a Model and Direction of Decentralization for Governor Elections in a Transitional Era

A Workshop Series to Promote Democracy and Decentralization in Thailand (Workshop 6)

Thailand has over 7,000 local government organizations established in various forms and levels, e.g. provincial administrative organizations, sub-district administrative organizations, municipalities, or even special autonomous cities like Bangkok and Pattaya. In details, however, the structure and the actual administrative process are not quite correlate. The Chief Executives and Council Members of local government organizations come directly from the local elections, but they are still overseen by civil servants who are assigned by the central government as governors of provinces. The budget approval, inspection of the overall administration, and even dismissal of the local government chiefs are authorized by the governors. As a result, it has gradually raised questions and awareness on improvement of Thailand’s decentralization since, in fact, there are many organic laws in the sections both on state policy and local administration, stipulating that the provinces are ready to be entirely administered by local governments.

Elected PAO Chief, Appointed Governor, and Decentralization

Webinar Series on Decentralization

As Thailand has had a new government with a decentralization policy being set up, Creative Urban Solution Center (CUSC) has taken this important time to launch a campaign for more steps of decentralization in the society. As well, direct elections of governors are necessary, needing a clear working guideline and structure. An achievement of this project will allow target participants and Thai public to be more participative in decentralization through local democracy. Policy-makers will also get sensitized to their legislative representation and service functions towards the citizens.
