Webinar: What to Expect from Indonesia’s 2019 Fire Season (For Journalists)
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDTOnline
Indonesia’s forest fire season is quickly approaching. While fire outbreaks have been an annual environmental and air quality crisis for decades, dry El Nino conditions this year indicate Indonesia’s 2019 fire season could be as severe as 2015. But have government policies curbed illegal burning enough to change the outcome?
About the Webinar
Hear from WRI experts how weather conditions and political dynamics could affect this year’s fire season and learn how to monitor and visualize fires in near-real-time on the Global Forest Watch Fires platform.
GFW Fires is an incredibly useful data platform to track when and where fires are burning; how many fires are on peatland vs plantations; if smoke plumes are blowing toward Singapore or neighboring countries; and more.
