The ASEAN Green Initiative (AGI) is a demonstration of ASEAN’s commitment to the conservation of the region’s rich biodiversity — the source of ecosystem services that are vital to our survival.
As the ASEAN Member States take on actions for regenerating our environment, the AGI aims to set the standards for the recognition of the best ecosystem restoration activities that not only regrow our forests but contribute to peoples’ well-being, livelihood improvement, and resilience-building.
Under this initiative, the ASEAN endeavours to plant at least 10 million native trees across the 10 ASEAN Member States in a span of 10 years, in line with the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
Join us in planting and nurturing the seeds of conservation, that future generations may enjoy the fruits of a restored ecosystem.
The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration is a global rallying call for the protection and revival of ecosystems on Earth, for the benefit of people and nature. It aims to halt the degradation of ecosystems, and restore them to achieve global biodiversity targets.
Only with healthy ecosystems can we enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change, and stop the collapse of biodiversity.
The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) was established in 2005 by the ASEAN Member States (AMS) as a response to biodiversity loss in the region. It is an intergovernmental organisation that facilitates cooperation and coordination among the ten ASEAN Member States and with regional and international organisations on the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of such natural treasures.
