During the covid-19 outbreak, Thailand endured environmental damage. The failure of public sector departments to manage economic and environmental challenges sparked a national media discussion about poor governance. The public had an unfavorable impression of the government's performance during the epidemic. This study aims to comprehend how good management and economic progress affect environmental degradation in Thailand during covid-19. This study examined the aspects of good governance and economic growth that contribute to environmental deterioration using secondary sources deemed to be credible. This study indicated that good management and economic progress contributed to environmental degradation in Thailand throughout the covid-19 period. This study combines ARDL techniques with the Error-Correction Model (ECM). These results demonstrate how strong governance and economic progress contribute to a decline in CO2 emissions. The latest investigation confirms the conclusions of prior research. This research contributes to the body of knowledge because previous studies did not address the importance of good governance and economic growth in environmental degradation. The recent research also has significant implications for the Thai government's efforts to increase environmental sustainability through good management and economic development.
