They disseminate, where possible, information on the importance of conservation measures and their relationship to sustainable development goals and organize, where possible, public participation in the planning and implementation of conservation measures. [57] Singapore Environment and Development Resolution of 18 February 1992 29 March 2006. The preamble to ADHD mentions the Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB). [96] All ASEAN countries, with the exception of Brunei, have ratified the CBD (Thailand was the last country to do so in 2004). The ADHP preamble supports the recognition of in situ conservation of ecosystems and natural habitats as a precondition for the preservation of biodiversity in protected areas. As part of the Protected Areas Work Programme, the CBD recommended, at the 7th Conference of the Parties, which met in February-March 2004 in Kuala Lumpur[97] [97] (Decision VII/28 – Protected Areas – Article 8 bis) to e), that the programme incorporates the relationship between protected areas and the landscape in order to enable the assessment of goods and services from protected areas. The resolution also confirms ASEAN`s responsibility, particularly in the areas of freshwater resources, forests and biodiversity. Since the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) [58] and the 2003 World Summit for Sustainable Development (HMD),[59] ASEAN has gradually collaborated in the field of natural resources, and this is now reflected in many important areas.

To date, only three of the six signatory states, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand, have ratified it. Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei. It is therefore not yet in force. In 1977, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) commissioned its regional advisory team to visit the five founding ASEAN member states (Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand) to identify environmental priorities. The result was Phase I of the ASEAN Sub-Regional Environment Programme (ASEP) 1978-1982. One of ASEP`s six programs was Nature Conservation and Terrestrial Ecosystems. This was the beginning of ASEAN`s protection of the natural resource environment. Today, after 30 years, natural resource cooperation is reflected in some 35 relevant instruments covering biodiversity, the marine and coastal environment and water resources. Mechanisms include guidelines, programs and action plans, strategies and agreements. They constitute a body of environmental legislation that can serve as a basis for harmonizing natural resource management at the ASEAN sub-regional level with implementation at the national level. [45] This draft agreement[44] recognizes the need to ensure consistency and consistency of rules on access to genetic resources and their equitable sharing of benefits in the ASEAN region.
