Rationale and BackgroundASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution
A Multilateral Agreement and Partner in the Global Wildland Fire Network

Rationale and Background

At the beginning of the 21st Century the application of fire in land-use systems and wildfires in forests and other vegetation in the South East Asian region are still contributing to the degradation of the environment and the atmosphere, jeopardizing the sustainability of land-use systems, and threatening human populations, especially human health. Countries members of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the international community have increased their efforts to reduce the occurrence and negative impacts of fires. In conjunction with the World Conference on Land and Forest Fire Hazards (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 10-13 June 2002) and the 9th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting on Haze (11 June 2002) it was decided that the ASEAN countries, based on their long-term efforts and agreements to cooperate in the field of fire and smoke pollution management, join the global network of Regional Wildland Fire Networks under the auspices of the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) and the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC).

Key documents on the ASEAN Haze Action Online website

The Coordination and Support Unit of the Regional Haze Action Plan (RHAP) is based at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta. The ASEAN Haze Action Online website provides a number of documents that introduce the fire problem and provide information on political activities and policies that address the fire problem.

ITTO Guidelines on Fire Management in Tropical Forests

The sixth publication in the ITTO Policy Development Series provides practical assistance to member countries as they address issues and develop fire management principles to ensure the protection and sustainable management of tropical forests.
