Pacific island countries, have implemented a comprehensive set of national state of the environment reports and environmental management plans. (see more on "Environmental strategies in Pacific islands") However, the gap between the stated concern and effectiveness in implementing environmental policy were associated with a combination of factors such as;
Philippines: Activities of UNDP for sustainable development policy making - Integrated Environmental Management for Sustainable Development (IEMSD) programme. (More...)
Malaysia: formulation and enforcement of planning and environmental guidelines as a means for integrating environmental considerations into physical planning. e.g., Cyberjaya
Korea: formulation of sectoral strategies along the line with Green Vision 21 and Presidential Vision for Environmental Welfare. For example, master plan for resource recycling and re-utilization, forest resources enhancement plan (1988-97), long-term water resource development plan, five year plan of energy saving, etc.
