State Minister for Environment: Condition of Forests in Java and Bali Critical
30 Jan 2003 6:18:4 WIB
TEMPO Interactive Surabaya : The condition of forests in Java and Bali are critical and this is why several regions have been hit by floods and landslides, according to Nabiel Makarim, the State Minister for the Environment. “We want to stop logging of forests in Java and Bali or impose a logging moratorium. Java and Bali should not produce wood anymore, and it would be better to impose a [logging] moratorium,” the minister said in Surabaya on Wednesday (29/1). In logging moratorium cooperation efforts, Nabiel met with East Java Governor, Imam Utomo, and plans also to meet with the governors of Central Java, Banten and Bali. According to Nabiel, the Governors of West Java and East Java have already instructed the Forest Service to stop logging. Nabiel said he is campaigning for a logging moratorium because forests in Java and Bali are badly damaged because of illegal logging.

8th Five Year Plan (Vol-2) Vol1-Index Vol2-Index Back to Index Agricultural and Allied Activities ... Plan Implementation and Evaluation ENVIRONMENT AND FORESTS Overview 4.1.1 The scenario of enviornment and forests continues to cause concern. Destruction and degradation of forests are taking a heavy toll of our soil and water resources. An estimated 6000 million tonnes of top soil with essential nutrients are flowing into the sea every year. Loss of top soil, vegetative cover, unregulated surface run-off with poor recharge of aquifers seriously affect the society and in particular tribals. Overall degradation of nature is also making our resources less productive, leading to impoverishment of the rural population. 4.1.2 Much of the water resources and the air in the country continue to be polluted, affecting human health. Besides traditional domestic pollutants, there is increasing contamination by chemicals, heavy metals and other toxic substances which are thrown into the rivers and the sea due to careless industrial and agricultural practices. Unplanned urban growth and industrialisation are also increasing the levels of pollution. 4.1.3 This environmental degradation seriously threatens economic and social progress of the country. Our future generations may discover that life support systems have been damaged beyond repair.

Book Series: WORLD FORESTS Volume I
This book addresses current global and regional issues concerning the world's forests, societies and the environment from an independent and non-governmental point of view. A main message is that cooperation on a global scale is not only commendable, but essential if solutions to the problems facing the world's forests are to be found. To achieve this, modern science needs to find a clearer picture of relationships between forests, human activity and the environment and of the consequences of environmental change for the ability of societies to survive.
Part I, Editorial Perspectives , is analyzing the ongoing globalization processes of forests, societies and the environment. Part II

World forests, in particular tropical forests, are disappearing at an alarming rate. As that resource disappears, the planet's biodiversity and valuable human habitat is also at risk. For the past decade, the preoccupation with the fate of the world's forests has crossed individual country boundaries and became an international environmental concern. While such concern has not resulted yet in a comprehensive international treaty on the subject, some progress have been made toward agreeing on some basic principles on how the international community views the protection and use of forests.
Those principles are best embodied in the "Non-legally Binding Authoritative Statement of Principles for a Global Consensus on the Management, Conservation and Sustainable Development of All Types of Forests" adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 1992 (the Rio Conference), and commonly known as the Forest Principles or Forest Declaration. Dubbed as the "first global consensus on forests", the instrument's long official title represents the difficulty of the parties reaching agreement on a subject that raises complex issues both to developed and developing countries. While not binding, but part of the growing number of international environmental instruments which are considered soft law, the Declaration attempts to incorporate an array of concerns ranging from sovereignty to sustainable management and local community participation.

Taxol, a chemotherapy drug; rubber-soled shoes; cosmetics; chewing gum; a molded plastic comb; and a softball can all be derived partially or fully from trees. With growing populations and rising standards of living, demand for forest products has increased. So, too, have concerns about preserving the aesthetic, cultural, ecological, recreational and spiritual values of forests. The question becomes: how do we continue to use forest products without compromising the integrity of the ecosystem? What You Can Do
  • Reduce consumption. Allow the type and amount of forest products to be determined by the forest instead of by the market.

    Deserts and drylands Freshwater wetlands Mangroves and estuaries Coral reefs ... OurPlanet There are probably very few truly virgin forests left on Earth. Most have been burned, replanted or otherwise influenced by humans at various times. Ecologists are replacing their model of natural forests as ancient pristine entities with models that characterize them as dynamic, unstable and short-lived Pressures on forests include high population growth rates, making demands on land for farming in particular; industrial enterprise based on natural resources, such as for timber and pulp production; and demand for fuelwood and charcoal, which consumed 80 percent of the timber cut in developing countries in 1995 Poverty and wealth distribution are also important determinants of forest survival. Many poor countries and communities rely heavily for income and exports on exploiting forest products, alongside agriculture, while richer countries and communities may have other sources of income. The fastest destruction often occurs when large numbers of people are forced to migrate into the forests, usually because of urban unemployment, rural land shortages, fast-growing populations, the creation of refugees or a combination of these.
