The Good Governance for Social Development and the Environment Institute (GSEI) is a non-profit organization which works on social development and environmental issues. The Institute also disseminates knowledge for public awareness and works on promoting sustainable development through community and individual participation. Among the institute's projects are "Good Governance, Public Participation, and the Decision-making Process for Environmental Protection,” which will provide a comprehensive framework for the decision-making process for environmental protection in Thailand. GSEI integrates different interdisciplinary approaches (economics, humanities, institutional analysis, environmental sciences, etc...) to provide alternative means for sustainable development. GSEI aims not only to promote good governance and fairness for the society and the environment, but also to create a network of cooperation between academics, at the national and international levels, to build up dynamism in social and environmental development and management.
