Human Rights Impacts of Weak Governance in Indonesia's Forestry Sector

Book - 2013
Rate this:
This report finds that illegal logging and forest-sector mismanagement resulted in losses to the Indonesian government of more than US$7 billion between 2007 and 2011. Indonesia recently introduced reforms to address some of these concerns and has been touting its forestry policies as a model of sustainable "green growth." But much logging in Indonesia remains off-the-books, fees are set artificially low, and existing laws and regulations are often flaunted. A "zero burning" policy and a moratorium on forest clearing are manifestly inadequate.
