Abstract

Ecologically sustainable development of natural resources and optimal management of the environment constitutes an essential ingredient in the economic development of Malaysia and the Southeast Asian Region.The frequent occurrence of man induced hazards and increasing depletion of natural resources since the late 1980s further re-enforced the need for a more sustainable development and a detailed understanding of the dynamic interdependence of the natural environment. Remote sensing technology would be able to provide the technological tool needed to cut across the narrow confines of the sectoral approaches practiced in the region in order to initiate a well balanced programmed and structured development strategy, whilst ensuring ecological balance and conservation of the natural resources.
