6 July 2019, Bangkok - Khun Santi Sombatwichatorn, a senior urban architect in DTGO's Strategic Corporate Social Contribution Department, spoke at Thailand Social Expo 2019 with the Community Organizations Development Institute (CODI) on the Urban Action Team's efforts under Asst. Prof. 'Tum' Pongporn Sudbanthad to improve life for canalside communities.
The event covered community development work focused on low-income housing along Bangkok's canals. The
audience gathered community members involved in the project, along with NGO workers and residents from
nearby areas.

K. Santi explained how advisors from MQDC and DTGO are helping ensure the well-being of communities
affected by an ambitious ongoing project to restore the city's neglected canal network.

Through assisting with sophisticated master planning, the advisors of the Urban Action team help provide
opportunities for local economic development as well as housing for families relocated amid work to improve
other urban infrastructure and reduce flood risks.
