LadangHutan - A Look at Forest Plantation Projects in Peninsular Malaysia

Local environmental journalism portal Macaranga recently released a series of four articles investigating forest plantations in Peninsular Malaysia. Keenly supported by state governments and touted as a reliable and renewable supply for timber, Macaranga’s year-long investigation reveals that forest plantations in Peninsular Malaysia have instead incurred high costs, not delivered on promises, and has emerged as one of the top drivers of forest cover loss. This International Day of Forests, we delve into the findings of this investigation with Macaranga's Dr. Law Yao Hua, who is also an environmental journalist, and a Fellow with the Rainforest Investigations Network, with the Pulitzer Center.
