Riau Andalan Pulp & Paper (RAPP) pulp and paper mill. The mill is owned by Asia Pacific Resources International Ltd (APRIL), the second largest pulp producer in Indonesia and part of the RGE group. He is opposed to the presence of the company on Kampar because he fears the impact it will have on the fragile peatland ecosystem.Locations:Indonesia-Kampar Regency-Riau-Southeast Asia-SumatraDate:5 May, 2013Credit:© Kemal Jufri / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5760px X 3840pxKeywords:Activists-APRIL-Barges-Day-Deforestation-East Asian ethnicities-Elderly-Forests (campaign title)-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Men-Outdoors-Paper industry-Rivers-Timber-Timber industry-Tropical rainforestsShoot:Sumatra Forests DocumentationIn May 2011, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono signed a decree committing Indonesia to a moratorium on the issuance of new permits in primary forests and peat land. Although this moratorium, renewed in May 2013 for a further two years, leaves around 40 million hectares of forest unprotected, the moratorium is important to help achieve Indonesia’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal of 26 percent by 2020. Indonesia is one of the world's largest producers of greenhouse gases, largely owing to the rapid destruction of its forests and peat lands for palm oil and pulp and paper. This shoot includes images of land clearance and deforestation, palm oil plantations, and pulp concessions in Riau, Sumatra.
