The Harapan Rainforest project in Sumatra, Indonesia is becoming increasingly controversial. A new film documents how local people are excluded from the project and how their livelihoods are threatened by the project. The Harapan project is run by PT Restorasi Ekosistem Indonesia (PT REKI), which consists of a local group Burung Indonesia, the UK’s Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and BirdLife International.
REDD-Monitor has repeatedly asked John Lanchbery at the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds for a response to the critiques of the project from local people in Indonesia. He has so far failed to provide a public response.
