Challenges

Extreme deforestation, endangered biodiversity, large scale monocultures, lack of the alternative income for the locals, lots of degraded land

The Current Situation

Indonesian rainforests are one of the most ecologically and culturally diverse environments on the planet. They are home to hundreds of indigenous groups and thousands of animal species, including Sumatran tigers and orangutans.

Unfortunately, Indonesia has one of the world’s highest deforestation rates, with just about half of the country’s original forest cover remaining. One of the main challenges that we face in the country is the exploitative industries such as monoculture plantations, illegal logging, and mining activities. The destruction of Indonesia’s rainforests has reached such proportions that it is affecting the global climate, releasing billions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere. Currently, more than 65% of the greenhouse gases emitted by Indonesia are caused due to land use change from forests to plantations and agriculture.

Our Work in Indonesia

Our 100 Million Trees Program addresses these issues by reforesting degraded land. We are working together with many smallholder farmers and empower local livelihoods by providing opportunities for long-term, sustainable income through our holistic agroforestry approach.

In addition, we work across all aspects of the product value chain to ensure farmers have access to markets and to help Indonesia develop a sustainable timber industry.

Our work in Indonesia is widely supported by associated government departments and various local organizations. With their cooperation and assistance, we can share ideas and bring about significant change.
