Five Research Sites in Southeast Asia constitute the initial thrust of LOICZ integrative efforts. These sites in 1) Indonesia, 2) Malaysia, 3) the Philippines, 4) Thailand and 5) Vietnam, are supported jointly by the South East Asian Centre for START (SARCS), the Netherlands Foundation for the Advancement of Tropical Research (WOTRO) and LOICZ.

The projects as describes below, all address SARCS Immediate Objective 2: to integrate natural - social science assessment of changes in coastal zones. All involve the modelling and synthesis of both biogeochemical and socio-economic data that will be useful not only in characterising the coastal zone processes in the region, but also as test cases for the necessary conceptual and operational development for scaling up to global analysis.
