BCP sees Koh Mak as low-carbon havenSeagrass is the focus of a multi-pronged effort to make Koh Mak a low-carbon tourist destination. Unlike other resort islands that use beaches and the sea to attract visitors, Koh Mak is positioning itself as a low-carbon tourist destination. Located in Trat province in eastern Thailand, Koh Mak has long enjoyed a slow lifestyle with less modern entertainment than other resort islands. A memorandum of understanding to promote sustainable tourism on Koh Mak was recently signed by BCP, the state-owned Designated Areas for Sustainable Tourism Administration (Dasta), Kasetsart University, Koh Mak Tambon Administration Organization, Baan Ao Nid Integrated Agricultural Community Enterprise, and Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization. Dasta is carrying out a Koh Mak tourism waste management campaign to improve waste collection and recycling.
