As measured by the Human Development Index (HDI), stages of development are varied across the region, which implies different development needs. Note the groupings of countries in four distinct tiers. HDI scores in Southeast Asia have remained largely constant since 2015.

Yet Southeast Asia continues to face significant development challenges, including poverty, inequality, lack of access to education and healthcare, political instability, and vulnerability to natural disasters.

These issues were further exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has led to significant setbacks and social disruptions across the region.
