The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has won a UN-Habitat award for its Klong Ong Ang canal renovation project.

UN-Habitat’s regional office and its partners recently hosted the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards (ATA), and Thailand is one of six countries that won awards.

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang said the canal’s renovation project won the 2020 Asian Townscape Awards of UN-Habitat Fukuoka, which was also given to Japan, South Korea, China, Nepal and Malaysia.

He said those countries served as models for city planners enriching people’s lives while conserving the environment.

On Facebook, Pol Gen Aswin highlighted the success of BMA’s town development. The ATA honoured projects that uplifted lives, he said.
