    Companies Behind Forest Fires

    Land and forest fires ravaged Indonesia again in 2019. Tempo, Mongabay, Betahita, Malaysiakini, and the non-governmental organization Auriga Nusantara team up to investigate wildfires in dozens of forest and oil palm concessions. Satellite imagery and field checking on three concession sites of three firms strengthen the suspicion that companies were involved in the disaster that caused Rp75 trillion in losses to Indonesia. Poor law enforcement and lax regulations may trigger similar disasters in the future. This report was made possible through our collaboration with the Pulitzer Center through the Rainforest Journalism Fund program.
