Chain Reaction Research held a webinar on April 14th to share our research on deforestation in Indonesia that is attributed to the development of oil palm plantations. Palm oil-driven deforestation has fallen to its lowest level in four years in 2021.
The declining deforestation rates for oil palm in Indonesia are promising. However, recent government action, increasing demand for biofuels, the leakage market, and the increasing price of crude palm oil all risk more forest being cleared. Hear from Chain Reaction Research’s expert analysts and journalist Ian Morse of The Gecko Project about the changing context of Indonesian deforestation and what we can expect for the future.
