The Issue

Much of the rainforest in Indonesia grows on carbon-rich peatland, the destruction of which adversely affects both biodiversity and the climate. The increasing demand for palm oil leads to expansion of this industry onto other cropland, secondary forests already logged for timber, and native tropical forests. This increasingly replaces tropical forests with monoculture crop systems, depletes biodiversity, destroys old growth rainforests and causes air pollution.

The Solution

Collect donation and volunteers, focuses on outreach, research and advocacy on the transboundary haze crisis.

Their mission is to drive a global movement to stop the haze by empowering the community with the knowledge, means and values. Steering consumption patterns toward sustainable palm oil and paper as well as assisting Indonesian and Malaysian farmers to create a sustainable livelihood are two main ways they empower the community.
