PATTARAPONG CHATPATTARASILLAs elections loom, we take a closer look at some of the major parties and their key policies towards the environment. Renewable and clean energy, replacing Thailand's highly-polluting coal-fired power plants, along with the impacts of damming the Mekong River, all failed to stir the interest of Thailand's parties. The Dems, CTP, FF and PT, intend to increase Thailand's overall forest cover as well as the number and size of its protected areas. Gender equality and diversity find mention by CP, Dems, FF, PP and CTP. Some specifically mention LGBTQ rights (Dems, FF and CTP), supporting the elderly (CP, Dems, FF, PPRP, PCH and CTP) as well as the disabled (CP, PP and CTP).
