ASEAN Haze and Peatlands Programme

To promote the sustainable management of peatlands and reduce the impacts of fire and transboundary haze pollution in the ASEAN region, ASEAN in collaboration with various partners and stakeholders are implementing several projects/programmes, among others, the ASEAN-EU Sustainable Use of Peatlands and Haze Mitigation in ASEAN (SUPA); ASEAN-IFAD Measurable Action for Haze-Free Sustainable Land Management in Southeast Asia (MAHFSA); and the GEF-6 Project on Sustainable Management of Peatland Ecosystems in Mekong Countries (Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar) (the Mekong Peatlands Project).

These strategic project/programmes would support the implementation of the Roadmap on ASEAN Cooperation towards Transboundary Haze Pollution Control with Means of Implementation (Haze-Free Roadmap 2016-2020), ASEAN Peatland Management Strategy (APMS 2006-2020), and the ASEAN Programme on Sustainable Management of Peatland Ecosystems (APSMPE 2014-2020).
