The Southeast Asian haze shrouds much of Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, and parts of Indonesia in hazardous air pollution during the mid-year dry season. The SIIA Haze Outlook is a risk-based assessment tool for understanding the probability of the incidence and severity of transboundary haze in the region. The SIIA Haze Outlook builds on work by the Singapore Institute of International Affairs (SIIA) to understand the haze and actively engage stakeholders from the public, private, and people sectors.
Launched at our 6th Singapore Dialogue on Sustainable World Resources (SDSWR) on 2 May 2019, Phase One of the SIIA Haze Outlook for Southern ASEAN presents an initial risk assessment framework based on meteorological data, and taking into account efforts by government, NGO, and private sector actors to mitigate the drivers of haze. Going forward, we hope to gather more input from stakeholders to present a more complete risk assessment.
