4th International Conference on Southeast Asian Natural Resources and Environmental Management (SANREM 2017)
Given various global, regional and domestic environmental problems, environmental security has climbed up the policy agenda to a position of major importance in Southeast Asia. However, differences in the conceptions of sustainable development in policy actions to tackle their environmental problems have created a huge impact on their natural resources. In this context, it is necessary that consideration of environmental management in this region are broadened to encompass the dimensions of harmonization between human beings and nature, between environmental technology and nature conservation, and between material and green lifestyles. Although there are well known principles of good environmental quality management, the real world is much more complicated than any principle would suggest. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd SANREM conferences that were held in 2002, 2006 and 2010 respectively have put forward many new ideas and realities about the issues of sustainable development and environmental management particularly in the context of Southeast Asian. The upcoming 4th Southeast Asian Conference on Natural Resources and Environmental Management (SANREM 2017) is hope to strengthen the existing platform and stimulate future collaboration in this field in order to sustain and adapt to our delicate and changing environment. The Southeast Asian Natural Resources and Environmental Management Conference (SANREM 2017) is a premier meeting at the heart of Southeast Asia to provide opportunity for scientists to meet and discuss their latest findings and developments in a wide range of multi-disciplinary topics that related to natural resources, sustainable development, and environmental management issues as well as the processes involve, the environmental responses and feedback, and the used of various approaches and tools to investigate environmental changes and impacts. SANREM 2017 is also hoped to explore and create idea and innovations in research and identify future environmental issues.
