Abstract

The smoke-haze disaster is one of Indonesia’s annual disasters with the most hotspots on Sumatra Island and Kalimantan Island. However, the smoke-haze problem cannot be solved by Indonesia alone. Research shows that the haze disaster is a cross-border responsibility. The activities of several companies originating from Singapore and Malaysia in the Indonesian region are indicated to be part of the triggers for the smoke-haze disaster in Indonesia. One of the efforts to mitigate smoke-haze disasters in ASEAN is the ASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution (AATHP) which has been in force since 2003. AATHP ratification efforts have been completed by ASEAN countries in 2014, including Indonesia. Through literature study, this paper examines the efforts to mitigate smoke-haze pollution across countries, especially Indonesia. The analysis shows that the ratification of AATHP has not been effective in overcoming the haze disaster. The reason behind is that AATHP lacks powerful and pragmatic international enforcement mechanisms. Strategic action with a collaborative approach is needed to overcome this annual disaster.
