Rakyat, Jaga Rimba!

Late last month, the Rimba Disclosure Project (RDP), released its findings for 2021, and found that Peninsular Malaysia will see deforestation amounting to a minimum of 72,584.73ha in the near future, which is nearly equal to the size of Singapore. They based their findings off a total of 86 environmental impact assessments (EIAs) involving forested land had been approved, 28 listings of forests for sale identified, and one project involving deforestation that was ongoing. The group points out that deforestation would not be possible without the support of the financial industry, and have called on all financial players to step up and recognise the connections between the biodiversity and climate crisis and urgently end all financial flows towards deforestation. They join us to discuss their findings and calls to action.
