In Rainforest: Dispatches from Earth’s Most Vital Frontlines, conservationist Tony Juniper journeys from the barren forests of the Americas to Indonesia, where palm oil plantations have supplanted much of the former rainforest. Along the way, he delivers a comprehensive view of the crucial roles rainforests serve, the state of the world’s.
Introduction. Indonesia is the country where the most forest is being cut down every year, exceeding even Brazil, although Indonesia only has a quarter of Brazil’s forest area. Forests are cut down either to use the wood or to make way for other uses, like mining and planting fields. Even protected forest areas have been targeted for deforestation to meet demands in international markets. Indonesia is home to some of the most ecologically important stands of tropical rainforest in the world. Between providing habitat for species and keeping a wealth of carbon out of our atmosphere, these unique ecosystems have everything – everything but protection that is. Global demand for paper and clothing is helping drive their destruction.

Indonesia is now the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gasses after the U.S. and China, with 85% of its emissions profile coming from rainforest and peatland degradation and loss. Deforestation in Indonesia involves the long-term loss of forests and foliage across much of the country; it has had massive environmental and social The Politics of Indonesian Rainforests book.
Indonesia is home to some of the most biologically diverse forests in the world and ranks third in number of species behind Brazil and the Democratic Republic of Congo. As late asIndonesia was still a densely forested country.
Indonesia holds the world's third largest rainforest, critical for the survival of much of the Earth's species and for 60 million people. In addition, this rainforest is pivotal for the world to reach its climate goals.

Vansina’s scope is breathtaking: he reconstructs the history of the forest lands that cover all or part of southern Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, the Congo, Zaire, the Central African Republic, and Cabinda in Angola, discussing the original settlement of the forest by the western Bantu; the periods of expansion and innovation in agriculture; the development of metallurgy; the rise and 4/5(1).
In recognition of World Rainforest Daywhich was launched in by Rainforest Partnership, below is a brief look at the state of the world’s largest remaining tropical rainforests.
Indonesia - Indonesia - Indonesia after Suharto: Between the elections of andIndonesia had four presidents, none of whom served a full five-year term. Suharto remained in office for just two months following his reelection in Habibie, his successor, served for only one year.

From Borneo to the Amazon, many of the world's key rainforests – and endemic species – are currently under threat.
Sadly, deforestation is rife around the world, whether that’s for logging. Indonesia is the world's largest exporter of tropical timber, generating upwards of US$5 billion annually, and more than 48 million hectares (55 percent of the country's remaining forests) are concessioned for logging.
Logging in Indonesia has opened some of the most. Throughout the postwar history of Indonesia, the military have played a key role in the politics of the country and in imposing unity on a fragmentary state.
The collapse of the authoritarian New Order government of President Suharto weakened the state and the armed forces briefly lost their grip on control of the archipelago. However, under President Megawati, the military has again begun. The Forestry Ministry has pledged to improve conditions in the Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra (TRHS) to save its status as a world heritage by carrying out a five-year master plan.
