Joint INFORSE 5-year Project Starts in Thailand

By Finn Tobiesen, OVE, Denmark

The first steps in a joint project between two member organisations of INFORSE were taken in January in Bangkok, Thailand. The Appropriate Technology Association (ATA) in Thailand and the Danish Organisation for Renewable Energy (OVE) had their first meeting in a 6-month preparatory phase of the 5-year project.

The objective of the project is twofold. First of all, it is to increase the capacity of ATA and the Thai NGOs in identifying, organizing, and implementing sustainable-energy activities.

Secondly, it is to increase the awareness of the Thai public on environmental and social impacts of different energy solutions as well as of the prospects for sustainable-energy development.

Besides OVE in Denmark and ATA in Thailand, other NGOs will be involved in both countries during the project.

The project is funded by the Danish Cooperation for Environmental Development. The activities will be carried out in Isaan, the northeastern part of Thailand, where ATA has been in operation for many years. Their office in Roi-et Province will be base for the activities.
