In Indonesia, deforestation is intensifying disasters from severe weather, climate change

31 Mar 2024  |  www.latimes.com
Severe weather and climate change are intensifying natural disasters in Indonesia, with deforestation cited as a major contributing factor. Environmental groups argue that ecological crises are exacerbating the effects of extreme weather, as evidenced by deadly flash floods and landslides in West Sumatra. Indonesia's vast rainforests have been significantly reduced for commodity development, making it one of the largest global emitters of greenhouse gases. While forests can mitigate extreme weather impacts, deforestation has led to soil erosion and increased flood risks. Recent government actions, such as a freeze on new palm oil plantation permits and a slowdown in deforestation rates, show some progress. However, experts are concerned about ongoing deforestation linked to new mining and infrastructure projects, as well as weakened environmental protections. They advocate for sustainable development that considers environmental impacts and better land planning.
