The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)


Jakarta, Indonesia



Description: The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is a regional organization comprised of ten Southeast Asian states.

ASEAN was formed in 1967 to promote intergovernmental cooperation and facilitate economic integration among its members. Its principal goals include accelerating economic growth, social progress and socio-cultural evolution among its members, alongside the protection of regional stability and the provision of a mechanism for member countries to resolve differences peacefully. If ASEAN were a single entity, it would rank as the sixth largest economy in the world, behind the USA, China, Japan, Germany and the UK.

Organization Type: Regional Union or Community
Issue areas covered:

ASEAN has adapted a Good Animal Husbandry Practices (GAHP) Animal Welfare and Environmental Sustainability Module, Layers, Broilers and Ducks.

Key opportunities and dates for input: 
  • A calendar of meetings is published on its website.
Requirements for participation: 
  • MGOs can engage with ASEAN. See Asian’s publication on “Engagement with Entities.”
Advocacy Opportunities:
  •  The Good Husbandry Practices work opens the possibility of developing good practice resources on AW in others areas.
