It contains a brief analysis of the most important universal treaties on this subject and of the membership of states of the region in them. The author considers participation of South-east Asian states’ in the program for protection and sustainable development of marine and coastal environment in the framework of such regional structures as the Association of South-east Asian Nations (ASEAN), Regional Seas Program for East Asia (COBSEA) and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). It is concluded that the problem of marine environmental security should hold a principally important place in the concept of environmental security of states of the region.
