Outlook for Land Fires and Smoke Haze Situation (16 – 31 October 2019)

Issued 16 October 2019

Hotspot activities can be expected to persist in southern Sumatra with drier and warmer than average conditions expected there. Isolated hotspots may also emerge in parts of Kalimantan during the dry period. Otherwise, hotspot activities are likely to remain generally subdued in the other parts of the ASEAN region. The risk of transboundary haze affecting the region is expected to remain low.
