  This chapter assesses the transboundary smoke or ‘haze’ pollution problem in Southeast Asia arising from recurring forest and land fires in Indonesia. It analyses the problem from the perspectives of the ASEAN Agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution and Singapore's recently-enacted Transboundary Haze Pollution Act The initial focus is on the ASEAN . South-east Asia. The most important pressures on Japan’s environment today originate from transport, agriculture, industry and, particularly, the growth of energy demand and private final consumption. Priority environmental issues include urban air pollution (NOx, suspended particulate matter, toxics), waste.
