    The importance of biodiversity conservation and its sustainable use for the realisation of the ASEAN vision of promoting sustainable development and a green economy is well recognised. However, the current state of biodiversity in general, and agro-biodiversity in particular, in the region is a matter of serious concern. There has been significant progress in the expansion of Protected Areas in the region, as well as the setting up of both in situ and ex situ biodiversity conservation programmes. Nonetheless, urgent steps still need to be taken at the community, national and regional levels to ensure biodiversity conservation and its sustainable use. This paper provides an analysis of the opportunities and constraints of biodiversity conservation in natural and agricultural ecosystems. This analysis has been used to identify important strategies and initiatives to promote community empowerment, as well as national strengthening and regional collaboration to enhance biodiversity conservation and its sustainable use for the realisation of the ASEAN vision.
