Dear Excellency,

We know that Thailand is developing country but almost of the development project either government or private project have not concerned about the self determination, fair natural resources management and democratic participation of people for the decision to start the project until the end of the project. There was also lake of improvement on good standard of technology and pollution to prevent the violation on Human Rights and Environment.

We found that no any law and regulation related to Extraterritorial Obligation and adopted the term of Business and Human Rights such as Cooperate Social Responsibility (CSR) have been implemented. We urge for legislation a good governance and social responsibility for government agency and cooperate to promote the rule of business and human rights and not only in Thailand but need to make it according to Extraterritorial Obligation.

There are several laws need to be reformed to ensure the right to live in good environment and impose their livelihood and right to public participation, access to information and participation on natural resources management, especially, new Fishery Act, Land Law, Mining Law, Forest and National Park Law and Environmental Law.

As, Thailand is a member of ASEAN, the state should join with other member to promote and protect Human Rights and Environmental Rights under extraterritorial obligation such as making the protection procedure on The ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR)

Thank you,
