Engaging the private sector in long-term solutions to end Indonesia’s forest fires and haze

Watch this Discussion Forum on the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21. Indonesia’s fires and haze have implications across multiple scales, including regional investment and political relations, as well as international trade and global commodity supply chains. However, it is a challenge that will have to be met at home and with the participation of the public sector, the private sector, and the people.

This session explores the potential for the private sector to work with government and the local people to prevent and combat forest fires in Indonesia, and the challenges they will face. It also addresses the three most important actions for companies to boost efforts to resolve forest fires in Indonesia?
