Thailand Air Pollution Center of Excellence
With the intention of efficiently solving the air pollution problems in all areas nationwide in accordance with the Constitution of the Royal Kingdom of Thailand B.E. 2540 (1997) and the Act on Decentralisation Procedures for Local Administration Organisations B.E. 2542 (1999), which both emphasise on decentralising the State powers and authorities toward the local communities for their independence and self-decisiveness, Pollution Control Department (PCD) has therefore established Thailand Air Pollution Centre of Excellence (TAPCE) on 14 January 2002.

With the intention of efficiently solving the air pollution problems in all areas nationwide in accordance with the Constitution of the Royal Kingdom of Thailand B.E. 2540 (1997) and the Act on Decentralisation Procedures for Local Administration Organisations B.E. 2542 (1999), which both emphasise on decentralising the State powers and authorities toward the local communities for their independence and self-decisiveness, Pollution Control Department (PCD) has therefore established Thailand Air Pollution Centre of Excellence (TAPCE) on 14 January 2002. The purpose of TAPCE is to educate and improve the human resources in air pollution, create a technical network of air pollution control and prevention, support the research and development on air pollution control technology and improve the human resources of the local and regional administration, competence and expertise in air pollution management. Thus these people can operate and solve the air pollution problems in their own local communities. TAPCE is responsible for training the trainers from the member universities participating in the training network of air pollution management. The goal of this training is to enable the member universities to further spread the knowledge in the training course towards the other local human resources in charge of air pollution management, regionally and locally, in private and public sector, especially, the human resources in the local and regional administration organisations within the jurisdiction of the member universities. By this way, it is expected that this technical training can be introduced extensively into the local communities nationwide.
