This study examines the ASEAN Agreements on Transboundary Haze-free Pollution (AATHP) and The Transboundary Haze-Free ASEAN by 2020 as a vision of the eleventh Conference of Parties (COP). In the twelfth of the COP, it is adopted a roadmap which have eight items used as a strategic, action-oriented and time-bound framework. The finding of the study reveals that the strategy which has been establish becomes toothless its implementation because of the principle of sovereignty, non-interference and domestic policies that cannot be touched by the ASEAN community. This three principles is known as ASEAN Way. Furthermore, there is no available dispute settlement mechanism which has binding decision for the violation of the agreement. It can be concluded that the will in the agreement is not necessarily completed by the willingness and ability in the implementation. Amendment or additional protocol to the agreement is compulsory to strengthen the agreement in the implementation
