Sime Darby Plantation Berhad:
Dousing the Fire on Haze and its Misconceptions
Sime Darby Plantation Berhad (SDP) would like to invite you to join our upcoming Zoom webinar which will discuss the annual haze issue.
 
For years, the South East Asia region has been battling the occurrence of haze, especially during the dry weather season. Continuous efforts have been made to address this issue by multiple stakeholders from Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore especially on reducing hotspots and open burning. Despite the current challenges we are facing from the COVID-19 pandemic, these initiatives must continue to be strengthened.
 
However, in order to continue delivering results and solutions, it is imperative for stakeholders to evaluate their efforts by understanding and addressing the general issues and common misconceptions on the annual haze occurrences.
 
The goal of the seminar is to discuss these misapprehensions and provide a platform to educate the public on open burning, its consequences as well as other factors that can lead to haze.

Center for Social Development Studies:
Haze and Social (In)Justice in Southeast Asia: Past Experience and What Next?
In our first Political Ecology in Asia Seminar, coinciding with the International Conference on New Research in International Development, Human Rights, and International Relations at a Time of Disruption, we focus on the issue of social justice and air pollution.

The discussion will examine how various economic, social and political inequalities intersect in relation to air pollution in terms of its creation and exposure, and the consequences for individuals, families and society as-a-whole. We situate the seminar in relation to the past experiences of air pollution and the heated debates that have ensued, but also look to the future given that the COVID-19 pandemic is disrupting and has the possibility to transform many aspects of future society-environment relations.
