Forest Fire Families

Video | 28 May, 2014

Indonesia's forest fires are emerging as a global threat and driving a public health emergency. Seen through the eyes of locals, 'Forest fire families' portrays the devastation the fires and smoky haze have on ordinary people.

Indonesia's forests are the third largest in the world and its swamp-like peatlands are one of the world's biggest carbon stores. But decades of forest clearance to make way for industrial scale plantations is creating a tinderbox. Smoke from these fires add to air pollution and can be attributed to an average of 110,000 deaths per year. Business as usual cannot continue.
