Land clearing for palm oil plantations jeopardises Indonesia’s climate commitments, harms rural communities: report
The clearing of natural forests for the expansion of palm oil plantations in Indonesia is putting its commitment to reducing emissions at risk, according to a new report, while also causing the loss of land and livelihoods among the country’s rural communities.
Speaking to the Foreign Policy Community of Indonesia (FPCI) on Wednesday, Sharma said: “Every G7 nation has agreed to ambitious 2030 emissions reductions target, the net zero by 2050. But what we need is for everyone to move forward on that, and clearly we need G20 countries, including Indonesia, to move forward.”
In a briefing to Indonesian media, Zulkifi Zaini, president of the state-owned electricity company Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), said the company would invest in renewables and aim to become carbon neutral by 2050.

The recent controversy over the visit of a German Embassy staffer to the headquarters of the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) shows what happens when a diplomatic event has a brush with domestic politics. Here is what we know. On Dec. 17, 2020, an employee of the German Embassy visited the FPI headquarters in Petamburan, Central Jakarta. Her entry into the compound and the car she arrived in, which bore a diplomatic license plate, was photographed, most likely by an intelligence officer assigned to watch the goings-on at the compound. Two days later, FPI secretary-general Munarman confirmed her visit to the media and the incident went viral. Reports began to surface that the woman in question was a member of Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service (BND).
