Elevating from the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion (DEQP), Thailand freshly launched the Department of Climate Change and Environment (EEC) in July 2023, during the hottest month on record globally. The department is geared directly towards addressing climate challenges. These bold actions have garnered agreement from 90% of Thai citizens, recognizing the urgency of the matter. The department comprises six core units:
1.The Secretariat of the Department
2.The Climate Change Adaptation Division
3.The Greenhouse Gas Reduction Division
4.The International Cooperation and Strategy Division (open for collaborations) 🎉
5.The Participation Promotion Division for Climate Change and the Environment
6.The Climate Change and Environmental Research Center.
⭐️The Climate Change and Environmental Research Center: (opened on July 15th) serves as a central data hub, connecting all sectors and issuing warnings to the public, private organizations, and environmental agencies. Plans include three subsidiary centers in Krabi, Loei, and Chiang Mai, with the aim of having centers in every province to collect and link all climate actions and data at national level.

The department also closely collaborates with the Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO) (public organization) to accelerate and align actions for emission reduction and control.
Although Thailand has less than 1% carbon emission globally, but the country has been facing significant effects from climate change.

+Actively transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy and promoting innovation for sustainability.
An example is the world's largest floating hydro-solar farm at Sirindhon Dam, Ubon Ratchatani Province. The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) has installed solar cells on the water surface of EGAT dams, combining solar and hydropower for electricity generation, reducing carbon emissions by 47,000 tons per year.
