As the world develops rapidly, the ability to respond to environmental changes becomes increasingly important and a new paradigm of sustainable growth is emerging. The UN Future Report also emphasizes the importance of sustainable urban development, addressing the need for global response to key future challenges such as land degradation and climate change. At this point, unlike developed countries, it will be necessary to establish regional development and environmental policy models that are appropriate for the geographical situation rather than monetary development support for the developing countries in which simultaneously face environmentally sustainable industrialization and economic growth. In this study, the rapid development of socialist developing countries in Asia such as China, Myanmar, and Laos will be selected to compare features of each geographical feature and its indigenous local knowledge, size of development, the changes in the land exposures, environmental problems. And it analyzes the concrete patterns of policy implications and including the spatial science contents to examine the influence on the topographic changes, and identifies the type of development phenomenon in the territory of the country and its process. It is expected that identifies and interprets the uniqueness and geographical differentiation of the area by exploring these issues in complex thinking.
