Urgent action needed to halt the takeover of indigenous peoples’ lands for megaprojects in Indonesia

Urgent action is needed to halt the takeover of indigenous peoples’ lands for megaprojects in forested provinces like Kalimantan and Papua in Indonesia. The destruction of forests and rivers is undermining local indigenous livelihoods, and destroying ancestral lands. Between 40 and 70 million people in rural Indonesia depend on access to lands and resources, including water for drinking and sanitation, protected by customary laws.

Ces terres et ressources sont protégées par des lois coutumières.
