Abstract

Environmental resource exploitation would continue to provide the caltalyst for growth and development in Southeast Asia in the immediate decade. However, environmental degradation issues would continue to be the main challenges affecting growth and development in the region, especially when it affects the well being of the people of Southeast Asia.  Issues such as those affecting community comfort and health, social displacements, community esthetics and values amongst others are escalating issues directly or indirectly related to degradation in environmental quality.  Nonetheless, Southeast Asian countries are fully aware of the gravity of the situation and much concerted effort has been made by individual countries to minimize the impact of environmental degradation due to environmental resource exploitation.
