On 3 August 2011, Thailand announced the launch of new “environmental divisions” of its administrative courts to specifically handle cases related to environmental issues.

From the Bangkok Post:

The new divisions are intended to speed up the legal proceedings involving environment-related cases to better ensure justice and solve problems more quickly, said Supreme Administrative Court president Hassawut Withitwiriyakul.The divisions were inaugurated at the Supreme Administrative Court, the Central Administrative Court and nine regional administrative courts across the country.

From The Nation:

On yesterday’s inauguration of a new court division hearing environment-related cases, local administrative courts across the country have more than 1,300 “green” cases in hand, with most of the incidents occurring in Khon Kaen province.
