This project investigates communication strategies used to convey petrochemical pollution, HIV/AIDS, and motorcycle accident risks in Rayong, Thailand. Our goal was to characterize risk communication in Rayong to provide suggestions for improving risk communication in Rayong and Thailand. We accomplished this goal through interviews with government officials, civil-societies, academic researchers, and Rayong province residents. We identified successful strategies from other countries to develop recommendations, which we present regarding improving information flows, tailoring of information, collaboration among stakeholders, and building trust.
