Brunei —  The Department of Environment, Parks and Recreation has reissued warnings to members of the public against open burning with a fine of B$100,000 in light of hazy conditions that have re-emerged in Brunei Darussalam.
In a country in which forests still cover about 80 per cent of the land area, haze has been a persistent problem for over a decade.

In 1998, Brunei was crippled by dangerously high levels of air pollution which blanketed the nation in thick smoke haze caused by vast forest fires sweeping neighbouring Indonesian territory.
