Lessons Learned from the ASEAN Negotiating Group for Agriculture (ANGA)
The ASEAN Climate Resilience Network (ASEAN-CRN) formed the ASEAN Negotiating Group on Agriculture (ANGA) in 2017. Since then, ANGA has been representing ASEAN positions on agriculture in the context of the UNFCCC framework. The Koronovia Joint Work on Agriculture (KJWA) forms a strong basis for ASEAN governments to work together for shared agricultural goals in Southeast Asia. It has opened up many opportunities for ANGA to share best practices, enhance cooperation, and raise issues of common concern for all ASEAN Member States.
The lessons learned from establishing ANGA could provide important input into the continuous pathway of establishing ASEAN as a strong actor in the international policy arena on environment and climate change.
