An international conference on climate change and forests, held recently in Oslo, Norway, has agreed to provide US$1 billion in assistance to Indonesia to protect the country’s tropical rainforests.

The high rate of deforestation in Indonesia, through both legal and illegal logging activities, is fueled by income from trade commodities such as timber and other forest products and land clearing for the expansion of palm oil plantations.
