Batang Toru Sumatra Indonesia
The Government of the Republic of Indonesia has approved a hydropower development for Batang Toru forest in north Sumatra. Sustained 365 supports Indonesia's shift to a low carbon economy however this particular development has significant environmental and social impacts, including the removal of habitat of the critically endangered Tapanuli orangutan.
Sustained 365 has developed a strategic proposal to enhance renewable energy development in north Sumatra to facilitate it becoming responsible and sustainable. We are presently seeking to meet with the Indonesian Government to present our proposal and discuss potential avenues going forward.
