Indonesia’s Forest Fire Crisis

Indonesia is facing an environmental disaster. Fires from drained peatlands have caused massive air pollution, or 'haze', causing respiratory and other illnesses. The disruption in economic activities has cost the country $16 billion in losses. Stopping the haze requires a commitment to sustainable management of forests and peatlands.
