This edition of ASEAN Path looks at how domestic environmental laws have evolved across the region to foster development that is ecologically, economically and socially sustainable. The authors focus on the trends apparent in the lower Mekong region, and examine when and why environmental practices became a priority for governments. They also explore the likely business impact of these trends, and, ahead of the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community, discuss the potential for integrating the current policies to achieve a balanced approach to social and economic development as well as environmental and resource management.
