Clearing the Air on Your Rights to Clean Air

In early December 2021, a broad alliance of civil society organisations filed a pioneering complaint at the Malaysian Human Rights Commission (SUHAKAM), in response to the chronic and persistent haze pollution. Led by CERAH – Anti Haze Action and Greenpeace Malaysia, the coalition are advocating for a public inquiry into the gaps in the governance of domestic and transboundary haze pollution, and want systemic solutions to overcome haze pollution, among others. We find out more from Dr Helena Varkkey and Kiu Jia Yaw, respectively the vice-president and secretary of CERAH  Anti-Haze Action. Dr Helena is also a senior lecturer at the Department of International and Strategic Studies at the University of Malaya, and Jia Yaw is both the Co-deputy Chair of the Bar Council Environment & Climate Change Committee (BCECCC), and a secretariat member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group Malaysia on the Sustainable Development Goals (APPGM on SDG's).
