Palm Oil development, ‘Forest Carbon’ conservation and community rights

The production of palm oil has come under sustained criticism for its destruction of forests, biodiversity and wider environmental values. More lately, the industry has also been targeted to prevent the massive greenhouse gas emissions from its forest clearance and from drainage and planting on peatlands. Under pressure from local and international campaigning groups, the palm oil giant Golden Agri Resources has adopted a new Forest Conservation Policy that promises no clearance of tall forests and no planting on peat. What are the implications of this new policy for forest peoples?

Production d’huile de palme, conservation du « carbone forestier » et droits des communautés

La production d’huile de palme fait l’objet de critiques constantes en raison de ses effets destructeurs sur les forêts, la biodiversité et les valeurs environnementales en général. Plus récemment, le secteur a été ciblé pour empêcher l'émission massive de gaz à effet de serre due au déboisement qu’il entraîne ainsi qu’au drainage et au développement de plantations dans des tourbières.

Pengembangan minyak sawit, konservasi 'Karbon Hutan' dan hak-hak masyarakat

Produksi minyak sawit terus menerus mendapat kecaman karena menyebabkan kehancuran hutan, keanekaragaman hayati dan nilai-nilai lingkungan dalam arti yang lebih luas. Belakangan ini, industri ini juga menjadi target kecaman untuk mencegah emisi besar-besaran gas rumah kaca akibat aktivitas pembukaan hutannya dan akibat pengeringan dan penanaman di lahan gambut.
