Current research in design and development of an environmental management information system (EMIS) are urgently required which was triggered by environmental degradation caused by various factors including regional development. Managing environmental is required in developing such region as it very important to preserve environmental and protected species habitat. The main goal of developing EMIS is how to manage environmental efficiently and effectively by adopting Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for environmental management. This systematic literature review is aimed to develop a better understanding regarding the aspects between January 2000 and February 2017. The method used in this literature review is PRISMA statement conducting systematically by selecting scientific paper related to the topic from accredited journal. After inclusion and exclusion process, a total number 41 scientific papers were obtained. The information regarding research trends, datasets, and methods were identified and analyzed from the selected papers. Identification of research gaps and challenges of further research were also explored.
