Indonesian peatland fires: Perceptions of solutions

Indonesian peatland fires: Perceptions of solutions

Indonesia’s recurrent peatland fires generate toxic haze and release globally significant amounts of greenhouse gases, with severe impacts on public health and economy within Indonesia and neighboring countries (e.g. Malaysia, Singapore). This flyer presents a collaborative research endeavor between CIFOR, the Lancaster Environment Centre and the University of Cambridge on diverse stakeholder perceptions of the costs and benefits of the peatland fires in Riau, and opinions on the effectiveness of prospective solutions.
