Fire Free Programme (DMPA)
Forest fires have become a phenomenon in Indonesia. In 2015, fire and haze incurred huge losses for the Indonesian economy – the World Bank says that the economic cost of the fires exceeded USD 16 billion. The human cost was equally high as the fires and haze disrupted daily lives, prevented children from going to school, and worsened respiratory and other ailments. We are focused on finding long-term solutions to these forest fires which have become such a feature of the annual dry season.
