This is a powerpoint presentation on how to create securities in energy, food, water, and air in CLMV (Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar, and Vietnam). Without energy, people cannot modernize their economy. However, without energy, people will still be alive, and healthy, if there is a sufficient amount of healthy food. Therefore it is very important to secure food security. Nevertheless, without food, people can survive for several weeks if not months, if people can still drink safe clean water. Thus, it is very urgent to have security in safe clean water. Furthermore, without safe clean water people may survive for several days or weeks if the air they breath is clean and of high quality. In other words, it is very crucial to guarantee the security of clean and high quality air. Finally, without clean air, people will die in a very short time, perhaps only two minutes. Having security in clean air is fundamental in our life.

The discussion is put in the context of social, economic, and environmental sustainable development — following the UN’s resolution on “The Future We Want”. This sustainable development is people centred and inclusive, regardless of age and gender. Justice is another important point in sustainable development.

It also discusses two extreme approaches to security of natural resources: free trade and self-sufficiency. Usually, no country follows either one, but a combination of both.

It provides some statistics on natural resources in CLMV in comparison with those in other ASEAN countries.

This powerpoint also shows how demographic data can help creating securities of energy, food, water, and air, by seeing population as a market and production base. By understanding population dynamics, we can help creating people’s sustainable behaviour. This behaviour should become a trendy and “cool” behaviour.
