One of the main difficult environmental threats to the 10 international locations of the organization of Southeast Asian countries (ASEAN) has been the haze, the sickening and lethal cloud of smoky pollutants as a result of common burning of land and forests in Indonesia. This ebook examines either the risk and reaction to it by way of analysing environmental cooperation in Southeast Asia from a global regime perspective.
Tracing the advance of neighborhood cooperation at the haze and comparing the effectiveness of the cooperation, the writer argues that the haze concern, mixed with the commercial predicament of 1997, has profoundly challenged the ASEAN modus operandi, and ended in ASEAN’s efforts to set up an environmental regime to deal with environmental demanding situations.
