Our editorial about Indonesia’s disastrous 2015 forest fires is now online at Conservation Biology. We discuss the causes and impacts of the fires, with a focus on regional haze and global climate change. We argue that Indonesia’s forest fires are unlikely to be mitigated by national or regional action alone and that the best hope for long-term solutions lies in REDD+ and other international efforts to combat climate change.
