The Urgency of Extending Palm Oil Moratorium to Accelerate Indonesia’s Palm Oil Governance Reform

Extending the Presidential Instruction No.8 year 2019 about the Postponement and Palm Oil Permit Evaluation and Increasing Productivity of Palm Oil known as palm oil moratorium is a logical move for the government. This will create positive impact to global market support, trigger land productivity, resolve land overlaps, and contribute to the achievement of climate commitments.

Not extending the palm oil moratorium will delay measures for improving palm oil governance that the government have initiated thus far. Government Regulations issued since the Job Creation Law was passed still cannot accommodate the drive to fully improve palm oil governance without first completing the palm oil moratorium mandate.
