Smoke from the fires in Indonesia has resulted in increased air pollution levels in neighbouring Malaysia and Singapore.
The fires have been blamed on illegal rainforest clearances for palm oil plantations. Indonesia produced more than half of the world's palm oil in 2018. This oil is widely used in everyday food and cosmetics.
