The rapid development of industrialization, the acceleration of urbanization and the growth of population have led to excessive consumption of energy, aggravated the loss of natural resources, and polluted the air and rivers

All ASEAN countries emphasize the importance of meeting environmental challenges, but it should be noted that ASEAN countries have different attitudes towards these challenges. This difference should be attributed to the following reasons: differences in geographical environment and energy base, history and culture, political economy, ideology, management institutions, economic status quo, industrialization, urbanization process and technical capacity, etc
