This book consists of research on problems related to extractive industries in Southeast Asian countries. The underlying message in the book is that because current trends challenges the regional countries in dealing with their natural resources. ASEAN can strengthen the regional cooperative framework to establish good governance for managing the natural resources of its member states. The cooperative regional framework may be drawn from various lessons-learned, particularly from countries in the region whose economies and/ or people have been adversely effected by extractive industry practices.

The book is presented in four parts. The introduction explains the setting of good governance issues in extractive industries in Southeast Asia and suggests strengthening Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) as a possible strategy for resolving the issues. After the introduction are five studies on the problems of the extractive industries in Vietnam, the Philippines, and Indonesia followed by two studies on a possible regional framework for managing the extractive industries. Finally, the conclusion highlights lessons learned from the problem of the extraction industries as experienced by countries in the region and underscores the need to strengthen the regional framewoek on good governance in this sector.
