Transboundary Haze

Evidence and Predict Practices

South East Asian transboundary haze is a fire-related large-scale air pollution problem that occurs regularly and has been recorded since 1972. This issue has severe environmental and economic repercussions. In 2015 CIFOR reported that haze cost the region US $14 billion of damage related to agriculture production, forest degradation, health, transportation and tourism. Haze is mostly caused by slash-and-burn agricultural practices.
Bluenumbers show the location of farmers relative to hotspots. We can evidence what is actually happening in real-time at the ground level of supply chains. This helps farmers improve practices, and companies and governments support those who need help.
