Indicative map of peatland restoration project is misleading

[Jakarta, 29 June 2016] The findings of a spatial analysis conducted by Greenomics Indonesia in relation to the Peatland Restoration Project Indicative Map have revealed that that the map is misleading as it is not based on the prevailing regulations. Consequently, the map, which was produced by the Peat Restoration Agency (BRG), should be immediately withdrawn from the public consultation process.

This was stated by Vanda Mutia Dewi, executive director of Greenomics Indonesia, in Jakarta on Wednesday (Jun 29).

Peta Indikatif Restorasi Gambut menyesatkan para pihak

Last summer, an Indonesian NGO published research showing that an oil palm developer controlled by one of the country’s richest businessmen was clearing dense rainforest in New Guinea despite promises by its biggest customers to purge their supply chains of deforestation.

Nearly a year later, the company’s bulldozers are still at work, and multinational palm oil traders Asian Agri and Musim Mas, which have each signed high-profile no-deforestation commitments, are still sourcing it, according to the latest report by the NGO, Greenomics-Indonesia.

A new report provides evidence that a supplier of palm oil giants Wilmar and Musim Mas is bulldozing valuable forests in Indonesia’s Leuser Ecosystem in violation of the companies’ zero-deforestation policies.

As of April 30, when the report’s author, policy development institute Greenomics Indonesia, conducted field checks to verify satellite imagery indicating the destruction, a Mopoli Raya Group subsidiary named Aloer Timur was clearing high-carbon stock (HCS) forest across its concession in Leuser, the only place on earth where Sumatran tigers, rhinos, elephants and orangutans still coexist in the wild.
