Forest Fires and Forest Policy in Indonesia’s Crisis and Reform Era

Provides a detailed account of the human, economic and environmental damage incurred as a result of the 1997-98 fires in Indonesia

Nearly 10 million hectares were burned by the fires that swept across Indonesia in 1997 and 1998. These fires were largely fueled by plantation companies and others wanting to clear forest land as quickly and cheaply as possible.

The economic damage from damage to transportation, damage to crops and timber, decline in tourism, healthcare costs and other impacts is estimated at $10 billion.

As bad as the fires are, they are just one symptom of a much bigger disaster – the systematic plunder and destruction of Southeast Asia’s largest rainforest over the last three decades.
