Deforestation by Definition

Deforestación por Definición - informe resumido en español. La versión completa en español estará disponible pronto.

EIA has launched a new investigative report, Deforestation by Definition, exposing the ongoing and looming threat of illegal deforestation in the Peruvian Amazon due to installation of agro-industrial monoculture plantations, such as palm oil.

Through analysis of Peruvian and Malaysian public records, company reports and data, interviews, and satellite imagery, EIA’s report documents illegal deforestation and irregular land allocation procedures that contribute to massive deforestation in violation of both Peru’s own laws as well as international commitments.

EIA’s Peru Program Director Julia Urrunaga commented on the failure of these commitments, “The Peruvian government is allowing corporations to destroy primary forest in violation of national law by using a skewed interpretation of the legal definition of forests. The current practice of defining forests according to agricultural productive capacity, regardless of the presence of standing trees, is not only illogical, it’s illegal.”
