CLIMATE CHANGE is possibly one of the most worrisome and challenging
environmental situations of our time. In Thailand, and other AEC countries, HAZE is an additional burden
affecting human health and the economies. The haze originates from a number of sources, for example,
open-field burning and land-use conversion. Research focusing on these two environmental issues is,
therefore, in a dire need for the public’s interest and policy makers. The research should be
interdisciplinary encompassing all angles of climate change and haze.
Chiang Mai University is leading other leading research universities in Thailand to tackle the haze
problem employing expertise from various fields, ranging from basic science of haze and its dispersion
to capacity building of relevant stakeholders in knowledge about haze and its impacts and management.
However, the haze problem is trans-boundary, showcasing research and effects to solve the problem should
then be regional, so that a concerted effort can be later initiated and deployed..
