SINGAPORE: Efforts to tackle transboundary haze should involve governments and individuals, instead of just companies in the pulp and paper, and palm oil industries.

The exhibition was for the public to learn more about what causes the haze, how it impacts societies, as well as efforts to tackle the problem.
Representatives from think-tank, the Singapore Institute of International Affairs, and groups like the Singapore Environment Council also shared their haze-fighting efforts.
