Recently, environmental issues have become a priority in the agenda of ASEAN countries due to the
serious impacts of environmental degradation. Similar to other countries, ASEAN countries have their
own strengths and weaknesses in environmental protection, which depend on their policies and law
enforcement. This paper consists of three parts. The first part introduces the environmental problems
of the region. The second part discusses environmental approaches, namely pricing policy, green tax
and community involvement as well as assistance from developed countries to realise the goals of sustainable
development. The last part analyzes the shortcomings of these policies and proposes a line of
environmental problems and reasoning enhancing the overall quality of life and growth.
