Uncontrolled, large-scale peatland fires in Indonesia are a result of a complex network of interacting climatic processes, land use practices and human factors.

Effective action to tackle the impacts of drought and associated fires requires a detailed understanding of future climate-associated risks, physical conditions and human systems and behaviour.

KaLi research spans a wide range of academic disciplines from both natural and social sciences. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures we will identify the groups and communities most at risk from wildfires.

Using knowledge gained from our research, we will define priority actions and policies to support Indonesian-led initiatives to reduce the risk of future fires, and identify obstacles that might prevent implementation of these initiatives.
