The framework comes with four principles and prescriptions that cover good governance principles and practices across the value chain of extractive industries: (1) Protection of the environment; (2) Respect and protect human rights; (3) Transparent and accountable practices; and (4) Sound Fiscal framework and revenue management.

The framework is an initiative from civil society organizations, aiming at providing a platform and tool for harmonization of policies in extractive industries in ASEAN, especially the region will become an economic community in 2015.

The Framework has been developed for more than two by a team from IESR in collaboration with CSOs from the region: CRRT from Cambodia, IDEAS from Malaysia, Bantay Kita from Philippines, CODE and Pan Nature from Vietnam, Luta Hamutuk from Timor Leste, Spectrum and Shwe Gas Movement from Myanmar, and Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Indonesia, Article 33, and PolGov UGM from Indonesia, and Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI).
