Time to See the Forest for the Oil Palm Trees in Riau Row

(Antara Photo/F.B. Anggoro) Tembilahan, Riau. It was almost 10 a.m. when a group of men rowed their kayaks along the lush and narrow swamp to a peat land forest located an hour away from their village in Pungkat, Indragiri Hilir, Riau. The men have heard an oil palm plantation would be built in the forest despite their outcry. The resistance had, just a few months ago, triggered a clash in which 21 villagers ended up behind bars charged with damaging the oil palm company’s property.

The site the men were headed to was a canal newly built by the company to dry out the peat land. Upon arriving, the men were unpleasantly surprised to see the new canal. Trees, including the rare gonystylus bancanus, known locally as Ramin, have been cut and felled. The forest near the canal has disappeared. “Oh my God!” Land dispute It can be done.

La deforestazione per far posto alle piantagioni, infatti, inasprisce il conflitto con gli esseri umani a causa della rapida distruzione dell'habitat degli elefanti. Distese immense di foresta pluviale sono state distrutte negli ultimi anni per far posto alle piantagioni e gli abitanti dei villaggi prendono sempre più di mira gli elefanti di Sumatra, che considerano come parassiti. Per questo continuano deliberatamente ad avvelenarli, per evitare che mangino il frutto della palma influendo negativamente sui profitti aziendali. E a volte una fotografia vale più di mille parole. Come quella scattata da un abitante del villaggio sull'isola di Sumatra il 21 agosto 2014, che mostra un uomo porre un frutto su un piccola elefantino morto, vicino al fiume di Serbajadi, nella provincia di Aceh.

Palm Oil comes from the Elaeis Guineensis plant which originated in West Africa and grows abundantly in hot, wet climates. It is the most widely produced oil in the world (eclipsing soybean oil) with around 90% of all palm oil, coming from Indonesia and Malaysia. Palm Oil is a high yielding crop which takes between 3-4 years to mature and produce fruit. The palm fruit itself, develops in bunches which can grow in excess of 10 kilograms, and contain hundreds of individual fruits about the size of a small plum or apricot.

When the fruit is harvested, palm oil is extracted from the flesh of the fruit and palm kernel oil is produced by squeezing the oil from the internal seed. What is the RSPO?
