Abstract


In this paper we have presented sustainability transition
analyses concerning Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar. Key findings of
sustainability transitions were summarized in Tables 1 and 2. Generally
speaking, each of the countries surveyed has its own special challenges for
sustainable development. The socio-cultural context and historical background
define the direction and conditions of sustainable development paths in these
three countries. We can conclude that the key variables for evaluation are, of
course, (1) demographic change, (2) urban development, (3) economic structure
and (4) economic growth in the countries surveyed. It is gratifying to note
that these three countries have achieved quite a positive development paths in
the Nexus variables (food security, energy security and food security),
although biodiversity problems are significant in all three countries. As
regards sanitation, development has been positive, especially in cities, and
some positive developments have also taken place in rural areas.
