Chadchart Sittipunt Bangkok

“Bangkok is the most visited city, but 98th on the livable cities list”. I sincerely believe that the future of city improvement is not about having megaprojects but enabling people, including locals, newcomers, and visitors, to live happily and comfortably. Which is why we must listen to and cooperate with people from all sectors and all citizens to make Bangkok a livable city for all.”


Chadchart was elected as the 17th Governor of Bangkok in June 2022. He began his political career serving as the Minister of Transport between 2012 – 2014. Prior to his political career, he was a lecturer at Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University.

Bangkok Food Policy

Bangkok Food Policy 2023-2027, launched on 28 November 2023, aimed to enhance the sustainability and inclusivity of the city’s food system. Under this policy, Bangkok envisions itself as “the city of food with sustainability, equity and quality”. This vision involves improving food production, ensuring food access for all, bolstering food safety, reducing food loss and waste, and promoting food education.

The policy is the result of Bangkok’s cooperation with the European Union (EU) within the International Urban and Regional Cooperation (IURC) programme. Bangkok also received technical support from the Municipality of Milan, a global leader in urban food policy. The Italian city launched in 2015 the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact (MUFPP)

In March 2023, the District Food Management Sandbox was implemented in Huai Kwang and Samphanthawong district. This initiative focuses on applying recommended actions and indicators of the MUFPP to Bangkok’s food system, with a specific emphasis on food safety, food loss prevention and food waste management. This initiative resulted in significant achievements such as the distribution of 3,522 kilograms of food surplus to vulnerable communities, the collection of 191,376 kilograms of food waste, and the creation of 19,490 kilograms of compost from food waste as of August 2023. As part of Bangkok Food Policy 2023-2027, this initiative will be implemented in all 50 districts of Bangkok within 2024.

The Bangkok Master Plan on Climate Change 2021-2030 covers the whole geographical area of BMA, in the following sectors: Transportation, Energy, Waste Management and Wastewater Treatment, and Green Urban Planning, as well as an adaptation plan for Climate Change.

As the capital city of Thailand and a leading city in the Southeast Asia Region, Bangkok strives to reach the target of Carbon Neutrality by 2030 and Net Zero Emission by 2050. The BMA takes comprehensive approach to the low carbon and climate change-resilient urban development and action-oriented approach to the implementation of the Master Plan, promoting action and collaboration from the citizen, private sector, academia as well as other government agency.

Traffy Fondue allows its user to report everyday problems so they can be fixed by authorities.

The platform is free to use and allows people to file complaints anonymously without providing personal data like name or telephone number. Complainants are also informed when the problems are solved, and every complaint is visible to the public and can be accessed via the website.

During the past year (2022-2023) There were a total of 301,469 case that were reported on Traffy Fondue and 217,930 were solved.

Open Bangkok Data an open data initiative that aims to improve transparency, accountability, and innovation of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration

Relying on data-gathering technology, this initiative aims to foster citizen participation in city development, conflict reduction, and transparency. The idea is to make available relevant, quality data about Bangkok through digital platforms, handing the public a powerful tool to monitor and help shape city development.

For example, Open Bangkok Data will lift the lid on Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA)’s ongoing procurement projects, increasing transparency, accountability, and budget efficiency. Open Bangkok Data also offers information on accident sites around Bangkok and air quality in the capital. Relevant authorities – or anyone with good ideas – can then roll out or recommend solutions.
