The APEC Climate Center (APCC) has officially launched its Fire and Haze forecasts for Borneo Island in Southeast Asia for the year 2021, starting from April 21 on our website (https://apcc21.org/ser/sea.do?lang=en). The forecast will be updated every month on the 25th, and is available from April to July each year.
Haze from forest fires is among Southeast Asia’s most serious environmental problems. APCC’s Fire & Haze Early Warning System (FHEWS) will help provide information that can help prevent forest fire and mitigate their impacts in the region.
It provides forecast information on both precipitation and the probability of forest fires in Borneo Island’s four provinces for the August to October (ASO) season when the region has the highest risk for forest fires.
