Microphone Forest preservation’s multifaceted social and environmental challenges

Speaking in the forests on the east coast of Sumatra, APRIL’s deputy head of conservation Brad Sanders explains to Innovation Forum’s Toby Webb what the pulp and paper giant does to protect areas of pristine forest and restore degraded ecosystems in Indonesia.

Sanders explains the importance of water management to keep the forest moist and prevent the peat from drying out. And they discuss some of the social issues relevant to forest preservation – including working with local indigenous peoples to enable sustainable use of the forest lands and river systems.
