Six Years of Moratorium, How Many Areas of Forest Have the Regulation Successfully Protected?

Jakarta, 4 May 2017 – At least 2.7 million hectares of primary natural forest and peat land or the equivalent of 5 times the area of Bali Island, have disappeared during the six years of implementation of the policy of delaying the granting of new permits and improving governance of primary natural forests and peat land. In the same period, every year, 28% of fires have destroyed protected forest areas on the Moratorium map.
The findings from implementing the moratorium policy revealed by the Civil Society Coalition to Save Indonesian Forests and the Global Climate in Jakarta are worrying. These findings show that during the six years of the policy, there has been a reduction in the area that the policy covers, about 2,701,938 hectares. The irony is that the purpose of the land conversion still needs to be discovered.
