The Pollution Control Department has warned that seasonal haze in the southern portion of the kingdom is expected to be worse this year due to a drought in neighbouring countries, prompting the Environment Ministry to call on agencies to prepare measures to limit the damage. Meanwhile, the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation plans to increase patrols by rangers and set up early warning systems for forest fires. "Effective synergy between local and national agencies is the main way to limit the impact of haze on our health and the environment," Mr Varawut said.
