Abstract

This study aims to analyze public perceptions regarding the impact of haze due to peat fires on the environment and human health. This study uses a mixed step technique, mix methods of qualitative and quantitative. The research locations were Pulang Pisau district and Palangka Raya City, which areas had the most fire incidents and the greatest impacts. The results show that the two regions generally agree strongly with perceptions based on the causes of fires, mass media information, air pollution, the right to clean air, and health hazards. Therefore, a control strategy is needed starting from the source of the cause to the post-fire.
