What actions have been taken to mitigate fire/smoke?

 

Have they yielded any results, except for lower emission this year probably from lower demand?

It shows you, how powerful those corn and rice buying agencies are.

The haze is a consequence of burning fields which have been harvested from their corn and rice. Take  a few of those hundreds of helicopters all those government agencies fly their big kids and VIPPPPPs around and identify the location of the fire. Next, get the details of the land owners (another government agency, so it cannot be TOOOO difficult to find out who owns the plot) and fine them with 20% of the value assessed by the department of land. Said money is to good use for public hospitals in the neighborhood as that is the place, where all those coughing and sicks "neighbours" of those ignorant land kings live. 

I would assume that within less than a burning season all this comes to a screeching halt. The helicopters can go back to the warehouses and shuttling the local bigwigs ......

Your call; quite obviously nobody really wants to do anything about it. 

Interesting might be though, that tens of thousands (including my family) decided NOT to move to Chiang Mai for this very reason; if I need pollution and coughing, then its Bangkok for Thailand and an array of choices in South Asian countries like Pakistan or India. Any more questions?

Yes. And then what? Everyone knows that smoke is invisible so its source can't be traced and people arrested for setting illegal fires.

Anyone with chest ailments should stay well clear of Chiang Mai to my mind.  Anyhows, why wouldn't you want to live by the sea?   Its not necessary to live in a seedy seaside resort, there are some lovely options. Just my two pence worth.
