About This Book

The analysis and researches of many scholars and field specialists have gone into these 30 papers. They discuss many of the environmental problems and challenges to human life and existence presented by local and other exploitations and ongoing developments in Southeast Asian countries and marine areas. The authors use tabulated data and unpublished research in the eight sections on: underlying societal drivers and responses to environmental change; climate change and air quality; land transformation and its consequences; hydrology and hydrological cycles; changes in coastal and marine environments; vulnerabilities and adaptations to global environmental changes; and a final paper on a common need for action. This important volume includes reference, data, bibliographies and index.
