The Guidelines are voluntary in nature, but primarily aim to guide ASEAN Member States to enact binding laws and regulations. In addition to policymakers, agribusiness investors, financial institutions, have essential roles to play.


There are 10 Guidelines of the ASEAN RAI. Each has two parts: 1) what and why each principle is important, and 2) how ASEAN Member States and other stakeholders should take action on those principles.

Roles and Responsibilities of other Stakeholders

Although the Guidelines are primarily addressed to ASEAN Member States (AMS) as host states, there are crucial roles and responsibilities for all FAF stakeholders, particularly agribusinesses and large-scale investors. Ultimately, all stakeholders should strive to follow these guidelines, in accordance with their respective capabilities and needs, and as appropriate in the context of each individual AMS.
