'บางกะเจ้า' พัฒนาพื้นที่สีเขียวสู่ความยั่งยืน



มหาวิทยาลัยเกษตรศาสตร์ ร่วมกับ กรมป่าไม้ จัดเสวนาโต๊ะกลม เรื่อง "การวิจัยและพัฒนาพื้นที่สีเขียวบางกะเจ้าสู่ความยั่งยืน" เพื่อร่วมกำหนดทิศทางการพัฒนาพื้นที่บางกะเจ้า เนื้อที่ 1,276 ไร่ ให้เป็นสวนสาธารณะที่ตอบสนองประชาชนทุกเพศ ทุกวัย และเป็นปอดของคนไทย


ตัวแทนจากหน่วยงานที่เกี่ยวข้องและภาคประชาชน ร่วมแลกเปลี่ยนความคิดเห็น ในเวทีเสวนาโต๊ะกลม เรื่อง "การวิจัยและพัฒนาพื้นที่สีเขียวบางกะเจ้าสู่ความยั่งยืน" เนื่องจากบางกะเจ้า อำเภอพระประแดง จังหวัดสมุทรปราการ เป็นพื้นที่สีเขียว โซนอนุรักษ์เกษตรกรรมดั่งเดิมของพื้นที่ราบลุ่มแม่น้ำเจ้าพระยา และแหล่งรวมระบบนิเวศที่หลากหลาย


นางประไพ ศรีประเสริฐ ประธานเครือข่ายอนุรักษ์พื้นที่สีเขียว ตำบลบางกอบัว ซึ่งเป็นส่วนหนึ่งของ "บางกะเจ้า" เปิดเผยว่า ชาวบ้านบางคนมีความกังวลต่อการพัฒนาในพื้นที่ และอยากให้หน่วยงานต่างๆ มีการจัดกิจกรรมปลูกต้นไม้อย่างต่อเนื่อง เพื่อความยั่งยืนของพื้นที่สีเขียวแห่งนี้


ระบบนิเวศของพื้นที่สีเขียวที่บางกะเจ้า ได้รับการขนานนามว่า เป็นระบบนิเวศ "ป่าสามน้ำ" เนื่องจากเป็นศูนย์รวม ระบบนิเวศป่าน้ำจืด น้ำกร่อย และน้ำเค็ม นอกจากนั้นพื้นที่บางกะเจ้าจึงเป็นแหล่งรวมพืชพรรณธรรมชาติอีกกว่า 100 ชนิด


ปัจจุบันพื้นที่บางกะเจ้า อำเภอพระประแดง จังหวัดสมุทรปราการ อยู่ในความดูแลของกรมป่าไม้ ครอบคลุมพื้นที่กระเพาะหมู 6 ตำบล เนื้อที่ 1,276 ไร่ ถือเป็นสัดส่วนเพียงร้อยละ 10 ของพื้นที่กระเพาะหมูทั้งหมด


สำหรับการวิจัยและพัฒนาพื้นที่สีเขียวบางกะเจ้าสู่ความยั่งยืน ยังอยู่ในระหว่างการศึกษา เพื่อนำผลการศึกษาที่ได้ไปใช้ในการพัฒนาพื้นที่สีเขียวบางกะเจ้า ให้เป็นปอดที่ยั่งยืนของคนไทยต่อไป

Bangkok’s great green lung

Bang Kra Jao, an incongruous patch of jungle in the midst of Bangkok’s skyscrapers, is being rediscovered by the city’s residents and is rapidly becoming a popular tourist attraction. Ron Gluckman heads into the green



Just a few kilometres from the congested downtown of a city whose choking traffic fumes have seen it dubbed the Big Smoke sits a strange anomaly, a dark, placid, fecund place existing in a world of noise, light and chaos. An oasis of peace in Bangkok’s 24-hour bustle, Bang Kra Jao resides like a treasured island in the waters of the Chao Phraya (River of Kings). Unique not only to Bangkok, this great ‘green lung’ is an urban oasis unmatched in Asia, or almost anywhere else. Western capitals nurture vast central parks, but no major metropolis claims so much open space – almost 2,000 hectares of it – nor so accessible.

Thailand strives to become a world leader in Green Building
By Digital Content



BANGKOK, July 10 -- Thailand is working toward becoming one of the top ten countries encouraging construction of green buildings to conserve energy and the environment.

Ninnart Chaithirapinyo, chairperson of the Thai Green Building Institute (TGBI), said Thursday that the institute was prepared to evaluate environmentally-friendly buildings designed and constructed in accordance with the Green Building policy.

The evaluation was aimed to assure its internationally-accepted standards in evaluation as that of the US Green Building Council (USGBC) in the United States with more than 200 qualified engineers and architects.

TGBI said 26 green building construction projects in Thailand registered to be assessed in the past two years.

It is believed the amount of energy saved from green building construction will encourage more ecological building projects in the future despite the high cost of construction.

Meanwhile, the organization held the “2014 Thai Green Building Expo and Conference" Thursday at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) to increase knowledge and promote sustainable design and construction of green buildings in the country. (MCOT online news)

Future is green for Asian cities
China Daily
Asia News Network July 13, 2014 1:00 am


Healthy, liveable urban areas are crucial for sustainable development.

In Japan, it's not uncommon to see buildings that have been transformed into living structures with gardens and parks incorporated into their frameworks, while homes fitted with solar panels to reduce the energy footprint are also common features.

SINGAPORE, already one of the greenest cities in Asia, now has the distinction of having the world's tallest vertical garden - the 24-storey Tree House condominium.

Asia may not have a completely green city like Vancouver in Canada, which started on this path a decade ago, but there are some cities in the region making the right moves.

China is already starting to build eco-cities - places where people can live healthier and economically productive lives while reducing their impact on the environment.

Steffen Lehmann, a sustainable design and behaviour specialist with the University of South Australia, said that the idea behind eco-cities is to live with the environment and resources.

"Eco-cities strive to cut greenhouse gas emissions by producing energy through renewable sources such as solar, wind and biomass, and using low-carbon public transport," Lehmann said, adding that resources are conserved through waste-management techniques such as natural bio-filtration of storm water.

"There are even plans to grow food and plant new green areas within the boundaries of the city," he said. "The ambitious ultimate goal of these cities is self-sufficiency."

Desperate need for greener spaces

Ramola Naik Singru, one of the region's leading urban development experts, said there is an urgent need for Asia to focus on making cities more liveable and greener.

"Liveability comprises three essential ingredients: Air, water and land. Clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and green, well-managed land to enjoy," said.

"We have to manage all three of these natural resources to create liveable urban spaces," Singru, who is regional team leader for the Green Cities Initiative with the Asian Development Bank, added.

Green cities embrace a much more holistic view of growth and create an environment for people to access employment and services opportunities, she explained.

"The more we incorporate these into urban planning, it will lead to added health benefits for the citizens."

Asia has already been facing enormous environmental challenges. Three of the top five carbon dioxide emitting economies as well as 11 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world are in Asia.

In many parts of the region, losses from traffic-related congestion amount to 5 per cent of GDP.

The situation is worse in poor cities that experience rapid growth, where pollution is becoming extremely serious, infrastructure supply lags demand, and basic public services such as water connections and solid waste disposal do not reach the majority.

In addition, many residents live on marginal lands where they face risks from flooding, disease and other shocks.

How Asian cities develop in the years to come will be the defining element in the region's long-term prosperity and stability, according to the ADB.

"The quality and efficiency with which Asian cities are developed will make or break the region," the bank said in an online report titled Green Cities.

"Despite the problems, these rapidly growing cities are not simply home to urban squalor," it said. "They contain the vital ingredients to improve millions of people's lives in the region. They are the engines of growth that drive prosperity in Asia and lead to solutions."

Axel van Trotsenburg, the World Bank's vice-president for East Asia and Pacific, said recently: "Cities have always been the engines of economic growth; now they hold the key to a sustainable future".

He added that the urban arena is where development challenges and solutions meet.

"Some 6.2 billion people - or two-thirds of the world's population - will be living in cities by 2050. Unfortunately, most of this urban growth will take place in developing countries, where the vast majority of people remain unserved by basic infrastructure services and where they are least able to cope with the uncertainty of climate impacts."

Singru notes how Asian cities are embracing green concepts and identifying ways to become healthier and more liveable through the improvement of air, water and land.

"Under the ADB's Green Cities Initiative in Southeast Asia we are working with Hue and Vinh Yen in Vietnam, Malacca in MALAYSIA, Mandalay in Myanmar, and four cities in Indonesia," she said.

Every little bit counts

SINGAPORE has prioritised waste minimisation, and a widespread recycling project has resulted in upward of 60 per cent of waste currently being recycled.

It also required all new buildings in the central business district to incorporate green spaces, whether it be within the building itself or a small park on the roof.

Cambodia has transformed a water system in Phnom Penh that, in the early 1990s, only served one in five residents with poor-quality water intermittently. In place is a system to provide international-standard potable water to over 90 per cent of the population - 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

So what do people in Asia want to see in their cities? The answers are complex, but if you take northern Vietnam's Vinh Yen as an example, the sentiments of the locals there reflect those of millions living in urban areas around the region, Singru said.

They want their environment to be clean, fresh and in harmony with nature, with more trees, more small parks, fewer cars, in convenient and modern settings.

The people of Vinh Yen are not unique in their aspirations. Throughout Asia, people are recognising that cities serve a function beyond business and economic growth.

They are places where people live, children go to school and families spend time together. The quality of the air, water and land in these cities has a direct impact on millions of people.

So how can Asian cities be transformed from sprawling, gridlocked and polluted commercial centres into healthy, liveable areas that can be sustained for decades?

The ADB said the transformation of Asia's cities requires a "complete rethink of the way urban areas are developed and managed".

Chiang Rai resort sets the bar for green standards
July 13, 2014 1:00 am

Le Meridien Chiang Rai Resort has become the first hotel in Thailand within the Starwood Group to fully replace all its lighting with energy efficient LEDs.

Stephen Morahan, general manager of THE RESORT, said "this project is one of several initiatives that we have taken to reduce our environmental footprint and move towards having a sustainable and 'green' operation."

In addition to reducing energy consumption and costs, it will also serve as a demonstration project for delivering concrete and measureable reductions in greenhouse emissions. Through this LED lighting retrofit project alone, LE MERIDIEN Chiang Rai Resort is projected to reduce greenhouse emissions by approximately 350 tonnes per annum.

This project is part of an ongoing effort by the Starwoods' Thailand properties having already implemented numerous energy and water saving initiatives including the installation of high efficiency lighting however, LE MERIDIENChiang Rai Resort will be the first to go 100 per cent LED.

Bogor turning into concrete jungle

With only 7.7 per cent of its area dedicated to green open space, Bogor in the West Java province of Indonesia faces a bleak future should public space not be increased to at least to 30 per cent, as mandated by law.

Bogor Institute of Agriculture (IPB) landscape architecture department head, Hadi Susilo Arifin, said last week that the administration had to fight for green public space to function as the city's lungs.

"In compliance with the 2007 Spatial Zoning Law, the municipal administration has to dedicate 30 per cent, or 3.500 hectares [ha], of the city's 11.850-ha territory to open green space," he said, adding that the ecological balance of the city was at stake. Hadi said that intensive conversion of green space into residential areas, the poor management of existing green open space and the lack of public awareness on public space conservation had exacerbated the situation. - Jakarta Post

China's business leaders show support for CSR

Corporate social responsibility in the future of China's evolving business environment was the topic for 80 executive members of the Suzhou Industrial Park's (SIP) Corporate Social Responsibility Alliance meeting at the International Business School Suzhou (IBSS ) last month.

Attendees included managers and industry representatives from China and worldwide, as well as Suzhou government officials and professors from XJTLU.

IBSS signed a memorandum of understanding with the SIP CSR Alliance highlighting IBSS's commitment to developing integrity in business - but also ensuring that the business school provided a meaningful contribution to society through its education, research and business engagement.

Yao, director of the SIP Publicity Spiritual Civilization Office, said "We have gained some experience, but as for the development in this area, this organisation needs more support from the academic department. IBSS is what we are looking for. Actually this is win-win cooperation."

Thailand moves forward with organic agriculture
By MCOT

BANGKOK, Thailand's Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) has joined with the private and public sectors, as well as NGOs and academic sector to push forward with projects to promote more organic farming in the country.

BAAC President Luck Wajananawat, along with community leaders and intellectuals, as well as organizations that promote organic agriculture held a joint seminar to set the direction to drive the operations for organic agriculture.



The seminar adopted the Bang Khen Declaration, focuses on creating a network to improve cooperation in helping to develop the potential of Thailand's organic agriculture operations.

Under the Declaration, all sides involved would be obliged to jointly improve the management, services, and marketing for organic produce, while also spreading the sales of organic produce into new markets and create direct sales between the producers and consumers of organic products.

By 2016, the network plans to create 120 communities specializing in organic farming, 60 of which would be selected to be presented to Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindorn to celebrate her 60th birthday anniversary.

The BAAC is the main organisation to fully support expanding the knowledge of organic agriculture to local communities and providing complete funding through the Green Credit programme with low interest rates. Besides, the BAAC will fully support 150 schools, helping them to produce quality organic fertilisers.

Ethical ideas, elegant solutions
Khetsirin Pholdhampalit
The Sunday Nation July 27, 2014 1:00 am



Some of the members of Eco Design Thai Thai collective. From left, Rush Pleansuk of Plato, Sopa Leevutinun from Benja Collection, Supawadee Kaewkum of Mazmoizelle, and Phutthiphong Thasanamana of Thas.

A collective of environmentally aware designers presents home decor items that are as stylish as they are sustainable

AFTER A successful collaboration last year to promote eco-friendly designs, the Eco Design Thai Thai collective is returning to the 2014 edition of the Baan Lae Suan Fair next week with a range of products guaranteed to beautify our world without leaving a heavy carbon footprint in their wake.

The group will be manning a special green market featuring a variety of home decor products, accessories and furniture that will satisfy all tree-hugging inclinations yet lose nothing in terns of function and style.

Led by Pipat "Top" Apiruktanakorn, owner of the Eco Shop on Siam Square and the brand O, the collective pools the strengths of its designer members while underlining its motto: The friendlier and more appealing the design, the better it sells and the sooner it makes an impact on the environment.

Among the products are lamps fashioned from leftover metal by Pin, smartphone cases and wallets made from kraft paper fabric by Good/Rak, Concept Tree's bamboo and wood stationery, as well as plywood bikes by Dots Design Studio and Relabrador's bags made from recycled leather compressed into paper-thin sheets.

The eco-friendly products of today have moved on from just recycling. Several renewable materials like teak are also very much part of the efforts to ensure that what we use is sustainable.

Known for a decade for its minimalist teak furniture, Plato is using the fair to launch its green label CRAW, an acronym that combines craft and raw.

"At Plato we mainly use teak because it's durable and because we really want to promote our renewable teak forests. We have a zero-waste philosophy so we compress the teak leftovers into a single sheet. These single cuts can then be used to produce table tops, side tables, stools, wall and floor coverings for our CRAW label," design director Rush Pleansuk explains.

Among the furniture being offered by CRAW is the Kon stool, a tree stump look-alike with a seat made from teak fragments topping a fibreglass structure. The lightweight twig-like Kin bookshelf is also crafted from bits of wood and has the advantage of being easy to assemble and fix to a wall.

"We're also working with villager groups in Sukhothai and Uttaradit skilled in producing embroidered futons to produce embroidered seating for our limited-edition stools and armchairs. We want to combine a minimalist and chic design with craftsmanship," Rush adds.

Like Plato, Benja Collection has been producing contemporary and oriental-style furniture with hardwood components for more than 10 years. Three years ago, the firm launched its first eco-friendly collection fashioned from scraps of wood.

"Our production is based on the maximum use of sustainable material. Our ash and teak comes from renewable forests and we ensure our products are functional and long-lasting thus slowing consumption," says general manager Sopa Leevutinun.

Benja Collection's Prasarn series features working tables, dining sets, bed headboards and coffee tables all made from wooden scraps. The large items are flat-packed in easy-to-transport packages to facilitate easy carrying and self-assembly at home.

Young designer Supawadee Kaewkum, the brain behind the brand Mazmoizelle, has won praise for adding value to overlooked resources and extending the life of natural materials. She finds lightweight cork's natural properties of flexibility and impermeability perfect for her funky fashion and lifestyle gear.

"I got hooked on the cork wedges used for shoes. It comes in a sheet and is available in a variety of beautiful textures and doesn't crack or peel. It's also water-resistant, which is why it's used to seal bottles. And when it's dirty, it can be rubberised." says Supawadee.

"Cork has antimicrobial properties and also repels insects and fends off fungus. It's flexible and strong enough to be made into fabric that can be sewn. In addition to its natural look, it comes from the outer bark of a cork oak tree, which is stripped off, leaving the rest of the tree intact. It's relatively easy to recycle, which adds to its sustainability," she adds.

Launched three years ago, the brand has received positive feedback for its briefcases, handbags, shoulder bags, backpacks, clutches and wallets that come in more than 60 designs. The bags are strengthened with either light or hard frames and padded with fabric or leather to ensure durability. Supawadee's new collection focuses more on such useful home accessories such as aprons, slippers, placemats, tissue holders and oven gloves.

Phutthiphong Thasanamana, the designer behind new brand Thas, is also enamoured with cork and last year introduced a range of corkboards with hand-painted surfaces designed to look like wood grain and fabric.

"You can pin your photos or accessories like earrings and necklaces on the corkboard. The board becomes a decorative item while your accessories act like a painting. It's not only an accessory keeper but also an interactive piece," says Phutthiphong.

His new collection is inspired by the texture of different breads and he's called it OTAM, which stands for one time after meal. His coasters, which are hand-painted to resemble everything from white bread to wholewheat and wholegrain, are finished with a magnet, allowing you to attach them to the fridge or lay them out on the table in loaf style.

"The size and weight of each coaster is very close to real slices of bread. A product should have multiple uses. Cork, to me, is a thought-provoking material. It comes from the outer bark of tree and despite its obvious benefits, is often overlooked. We should never judge anything or anyone by their appearance," says Phutthiphong.

NURTURING NATURE

>>> The products of Eco Design Thai Thai collective will be available at the Baan Lae Suan Fair at Bitec in Bang Na, from Wednesday to next Sunday. Find out more at Facebook.com/EcoDesignThaiThai.

CBD Energy to build 64MW solar power plant in Thailand
By Lucy Woods - 04 August 2014, 11:49


Thailand’s solar market appears to be gaining ground, as last week, SPCG and Kyocera announced the completion of 35 utility-scale solar PV plants in north east Thailand.

Global renewables developer, CBD Energy, is to build a 64MW solar power project in Thailand.

CBD has signed a construction agreement to consturct the solar power plant with the Australian-based solar company Environmental Engineering Group's Thailand subsidiary.

The project cost is estimated at US$112 million.

CBD has said it is to earn approximately US$6 million in profit from the project, and is expected to sell the project once complete to a finance company in SINGAPORE.

CDB Energy has a 25-year power purchase agreement with the Thai Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA), a government enterprise.

CBD Energy executive chairman Gerry McGowan said CBD is to continue to develop a pipeline of projects in Southeast Asia.

Thailand’s solar market appears to be gaining ground after stalling during the recent political turmoil. Last week, solar farm developer, SPCG and PV module manufacturer, Kyocera announced the completion of 35 utility-scale solar PV plants totalling 257MW. All 75MW is connected to the grid in north east Thailand with power from the 35 projects, also to be supplied to PEA.
