One of ASEAN`s most remarkable processes in institutionalizing regional cooperation is the gradual development of the “ASEAN way” to the “ASEAN charter route.” ASEAN has come a long way towards an ASEAN charter since the conflict between ASEAN member states as part of a “flexible commitment” when it was first discussed. At present, however, it is not known to what extent ASEAN is prepared to follow the “hard” path. It is clear that ASEAN will never be the same again. The new approach will be negotiated on how ASEAN will manage natural resource management. A more legalistic approach, for example, will give more teeth in the resolution of forest fires. The concepts of “sovereignty” will extend to other policy areas, including sovereignty over natural resources. This is an example of the convergence of divergence.  Convention on Biological Diversity, open for signature on 5 June 1992, 1760 UNTS 79 (entered into force on 29 December 1993).  See, for example. B DECLARATION of ASEAN Concord II (Bali Concord II) from 7 October 2003 28 May 2007.
On the recommendation of AEGE, an ASEAN workshop on the protection of nature was held in Bali from 15 to 17 September 1980, during which an action plan for ASEAN heritage reserves was discussed. The workshop also focused on cross-border conservation. Some of the issues raised were raised below: there are four general programs/action plans for natural resource management. This follows: the ASEAN Sub-Regional Environmental Program (ASEP) 1988-1992. ASEAN Strategic Action Plan for the Environment (ASPAE) 1994-1998; Hanoi Action Plan (HPA) 1999-2004; and Vientiane Action Programme (VAP) 2004-2010. These programs are a continuum. The objective of the 1984 Declaration was to help governments preserve and protect the hereditary biodiversity heritage of ASEAN countries through the establishment of an integrated national system of protected areas based on scientific principles.  March 29, 2006. The ADHP preamble also acknowledges the role of natural sites in the World Heritage Convention to reduce biodiversity loss.
Some of these AHPs may well be future World Heritage sites. The synergies of these agreements with other biodiversity instruments, such as the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, in particular as habitat for waterfowl, the ASEAN Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (although not yet in force), the 1997 agreement on the protection and protection of sea turtles aSEAN, etc., must be taken into account when developing guidelines for the management of PEP.
