UK pledges 50m to tackle Indonesia deforestation

Date : 29th January 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The UK is to contribute 50m ($80m) to a project in Indonesia in the hope it will tackle climate change. Large-scale deforestation makes the South East Asian country the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, after China and the US. The money will be used to encourage palm oil manufacturers to grow new plantations on land already degraded instead of clearing new forest. The Indonesian president has pledged to cut carbon emissions by 26% by 2020. President Susilo Bambang Yudoyono has said Indonesia could cut emissions by up to 41% if the country was given international help.
