The ASEAN State of the Environment Report (SOER) is a regular flagship publication of the ASEAN Senior Officials on Environment (ASOEN) which is periodically published every 3-5 years. The SOERs present a comprehensive review of the state and trends of the environment, the pressures on it and the drivers of those pressures, and the national and regional initiatives in place to address environmental concerns, to provide an overall outlook for the ASEAN environment. The main purpose of the SOER is to provide relevant and useful information on environmental issues to the public and decision-makers, to raise awareness and support more informed environmental management decisions that lead to more sustainable use and effective conservation of environmental assets of the region.
