Asian Heritage Parks

First established in 1984, and strengthened in 2003 with the signing of the ASEAN Declaration on Heritage Parks, the ASEAN Heritage Parks Programme (AHP) is a network of 35 protected areas in the 10 ASEAN member states, recognized for their exceptional biodiversity value or uniqueness. It was established to improve cooperation on the conservation and management of these sites, seven of which are in Myanmar.
