The proposal has an overall goal “to develop new pollution management model based on information disclosure – public participation – promotion of voluntary management which support super cluster policy as well as be transferred to neighboring countries” and a project purpose “to implement pilot project on new pollution management model based on information disclosure – public participation – promotion of voluntary management”.
Since then, there were several situations causing the delay in implementation. In September 2018, JICA took initiative to change to the implementation modality from “project type technical cooperation” to “individual expert assignment” in view of well developed counterpart status of the Thai side and also to avoid any further delay in implementation. Changing the modality with reduced scope was accepted by the Thai side, and it was agreed to start the cooperation in early 2019.
