Chiang Mai: Thailand has proposed each country set its own measures to reduce air particle levels according to their own standards, arguing such "active" measures could then be included in the Asean Haze-Free Roadmap to control transboundary haze pollution.
The proposal came Monday as high-level Asean officials gathered in the northern province to attend the three-day First Taskforce Meeting to Draft the Roadmap on Asean Cooperation Towards Transboundary Haze Pollution Control with Means of Implementation. Myanmar and Brunei were absent from the meeting.
