Caught REDD Handed

On the day Indonesia’s landmark moratorium on forest conversion was signed and celebrated in Jakarta, it was being actively broken in a crime-riddled Pilot Province.

This report by us and Indonesian partner Telapak documents peat forest in Central Kalimantan’s moratorium zone being illegally razed by a palm oil firm.

The moratorium and Pilot Province are both cornerstones of Indonesia’s $1bn agreement with Norway on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+).
