The PRTR session enabled the audience from governments, universities, research institutes and private sectors as well as those involved in the project to understand well the current states of the PRTR project through presentations and Q&A. The collaborative presentations with the governments and private sectors could gave the audience a strong impression that the PRTR project is going well under a good cooperative relationship between stakeholders. The audience was reminded that new Thai methodologies are incorporated in some parts. This session sought to enhance the quality of activities for PRTR pilot implementation at the final stage.
