Abstract:There is widespread air pollution surrounding Southeast Asia, mainly in Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia, resulting from Riau Province, where forest and land fires have occurred heavily. Budget analysis is needed to ascertain whether forest and land fire control activities are within Riau Provincial Government’s budget structure. This research aims to identify gaps in the provincial government’s budget in implementing fire control measures. The perspective of this research used the conceptual framework model in the Punctuated Equilibrium Theory (PET) to analyze the relationship between the dependent variable, namely the budget, and its changes, and the independent variables are positive and negative feedback, especially forest and land fires as triggering events or shocks. With PET, researcher can analyze how forest and land fires as a shock can change the budget allocation. This research used a mixed method: a quantitative method for analyzing government budgets and qualitative methods for analyzing interviews and other desk research data. The results show that the transboundary haze makes forest and land fires a national issue; thus, the central government intervenes in control of forest and land fires. Nevertheless, a particular budget is affected by significant fires, namely the firefighting budget. This proves Riau Provincial Government expand its attention in the event of extensive forest and land fires. In addition, this research describes how Riau Provincial Government responds to forest and land fires as shocks by facilitating all input from stakeholders in the status quo by the government with still accommodating the shock or triggering events that can change budget allocations. This research suggests policy monopoly on PET become neutral feedback that does not have to be negative; it depends on other variables or condition. Recommendations for Riau Provincial Government are early detection, monitoring, and evaluation of industrial compliance and law enforcement
