Protecting ASEAN’s Natural Heritage for a Sustainable Future

Sustaining ASEAN’s rich natural heritage through inclusive biodiversity conservation and protected area management for the future generation

The ASEAN region occupies only three per cent of the Earth’s total land area yet its natural assets are among the highest in the world covering four biodiversity hotspots and three of the world’s 17 mega-diverse nations. The region hosts almost 20 per cent of the planet’s vertebrate and plant species and the world’s third-largest tropical forest. The world's centre for marine biodiversity known as the Coral Triangle can also be found in the Region. ASEAN’s natural capital plays a very important role in the region’s rapidly expanding and growing economy and thus should be sustainably managed.
