Bali State of Emergency due to droughts and fires - an update

The interim Governor of Bali announced a state of emergency on the 20 October as a result of the ongoing drought and fires occurring on the island. The aim of the announcement is to help free up funding and resources for emergency crews around the island and to better distribute aid to those most seriously affected by fire and drought. Nusa Dua remains unaffected and no events are being cancelled.
