Third ASEAN Chief Justices' Roundtable on Environment: ASEAN's Environmental Challenges and Legal Responses. The Proceedings

From 15–18 November 2013, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) chief justices and their designees convened in Bangkok, Thailand for their third roundtable on environment with the theme “ASEAN’s Environmental Challenges and Legal Responses.” Distinguished speakers and the judicial participants shared their knowledge and experiences in dealing with the region’s environmental challenges, and the various means and innovations they have implemented to effectively address these challenges.

The ASEAN judiciaries agreed on how they could advance regional collaboration and accelerate the implementation of “A Common Vision on Environment for ASEAN Judiciaries” (the “Jakarta Common Vision”), such as by establishing National Working Groups on Environment and an ASEAN Judiciaries Working Group on Environment, and prioritizing the attendance of their chief justices at the annual ASEAN Chief Justices’ Roundtable on Environment that is supported by the Asian Development Bank.
