Abstract

This research aims to study the process of environmental governance of South Bangkok Power Plant Project, to identify hindering factors to its implementation, and to propose recommendation to enhance the level of environmental governance to be further exerted by the power plant. Qualitative data obtained from Semi-structured Interview with stakeholders together with findings from related document review is evaluated in accordance with The Access Initiative (TAI), the indicator of environmental governance. TAI emphasizes on process evaluation including 1) ability to access information, 2) level of public participation on decision making, and 3) ability of public to access justice. The evaluation results show that South Bangkok Power Plant project has implemented the environmental governance, complied with laws and regulations, had information dissemination through several kinds of media, and conducted periodic public consultation process to encourage public involvement in the project environmental management. Moreover, the power plant has set a clear compensation and correction procedure to handle complaint cases that may arise from communities. However, since, under such procedure, many steps must be carefully taken based on the importance or the urgency of the problem, this many times causes a delayed response to public request which in turn affects the power plant image and creates public dissatisfaction. As a result, this research suggests that the power plant needs to focus more on building public understanding and on optimizing the existing compensation and correction procedure to better fit with both the power plant and public requirement. The public understanding will be a key factor for public acceptance of the coexistence of the power plant with the surrounding community.
