Batanghari, indonesia on a sunny day in march, six teenagers have their hands full planting seedlings in a patch of burned forest in sumatra.
This was our first time planting trees right in a forest, said rifai, 14. the planting site is part of a 10-hectare 25-acre swath of the harapan forest that was razed by illegal loggers last september.

He and his peers didnt know it yet, on that bright morning four months ago, but their efforts had already been rendered effectively useless by then, thanks to the environment ministrys approval for a road to be built and forest cleared to serve nearby coal mines.
The ministry signed off on the project, proposed by coal miner pt marga bara jaya mbj, in october last year, but it wasnt until june this year, following an investigation by mongabays indonesia team, that the approval came to light. neither mbj nor the environment ministry responded to mongabays requests for confirmation before this story was published.
The approval gives mbj control of 424 hectares 1,048 acres of the harapan forest. the company plans to build an 88-kilometer 55-mile, a third of it through the forest, to truck coal from its mine in musi rawas district to power plants in musi banyuasin district, both in south sumatra province.
The harapan forest, whose name in indonesian means hope, spans 76,900 hectares 190,000 acres in the provinces of south sumatra and jambi. it represents 20 of sumatras remaining lowland tropical rainforest, and is home to some 1,350 species, including 133 globally threatened species such as the sumatran tiger and elephant panthera tigris sondaica and elephas maximus sumatranus. its also home to indigenous groups such as the batik sembilan community.
For decades, the expansion of oil palm plantations and incursion of illegal loggers ate away at the forest. but today the road project is the single biggest threat to this patch of biodiverse forest in central sumatra.
Conservationists and indigenous communities have warned that cutting a road through the forest could devastate the ecosystem, further fragmenting the habitat and allowing greater access for loggers, poachers and farmers.
Previously a logging zone, the harapan forest was designated in 2008 as indonesias first ecosystem restoration concession erc. these are former concessions that private companies can license for restoration as part of their csr obligations. the target is to restore these degraded areas to their previous forested state, thus preventing them from being permanently turned into palm plantations or smallholder farmland.

Southeast asia8217s response to the covid19 outbreak has curtailed electricity use and industrial production, pushing down coal consumption even further this year, according to the latest report from anon-governmental organisation which monitors worldwide fossil fuel infrastructure.
Even before covid-19, new coal plant construction was already slowing in the region, which is home to three of the worlds 10 largest coal pipelines.but the pandemic further accelerated the regions transition away from the fossil fuel as it caused delays in coal plant construction,revealed a study released on monday 3 august by global energy monitor gem.
Only one gigawatt gw of coal power was newly proposed and 0.8gw started construction in the first half of 2020. this is 70 per cent lower than the average 2.9gw of new proposals and 2.7gw ofnew constructionevery six months in the region since 2015, said the studys lead author christine shearer.
Indonesia is one of the worlds largest exporters of coal and with little oversight, coal mining companies in the archipelago have cleared rainforests and polluted natural resources, often belonging to indigenous communities. on the island of borneo alone, coal mining concessions already cover more than 3.8 million hectares. in addition to ...
I do think covid will continue to accelerate the transition away from coal in southeast asia, said shearer, who is also the director of gems coal programme.
Covid is also lowering projections of future energy demand, at least in the near-term, and with its higher fuel costs over solar and wind, plans for new coal plants may be among the first to be cut.
The chart shows a 70 per cent decline in new coal construction from the 20152019 average. southeast asia averaged 2.7gw of new coal construction every six months since the start of 2015 but this dipped to 0.8gw in the first half of 2020 h1 2020. image global energy monitor
The results from the global coal plant tracker published by gem showed indonesia bearing the brunt of the pandemic8217s impact.
Indonesia, whose 8,000-megawatt mw of new coal construction makes up the bulk of the stalled projects in the region, declared delays in its projects due to obstruction of supply and raw material for the plant components. the government also imposed a nationwide lockdown aimed at containing the coronavirus outbreak in the country, which prevented entry of workers from china.
But prior to the outbreak, the worlds fifth biggest producer of coal already signaled a move away from the fossil fuel due to a dip in its prices amid dwindling demand.

Tokyo -- the transition from fossil fuels to cleaner forms of energy will take time, and coal provides a low-cost source of power for economic development until that happens, indonesiasnbspminister of energy and mineral resourcesnbsparifin tasrif told nikkei.

Indonesia is the worlds biggest coal exporter, surpassing even australia. exports grew 11 to 439 million tons in 2018, according to international energy agency estimates, with about halfnbspgoing to china and india. philippines and malaysia were also buyers.
Tasrif, who took the energy and resources portfolio in president joko jokowi widodos cabinet in an october reshuffle, said indonesia exports coal to friendly countries when they need it. indonesia does not rely on these exports, he said.
But burning coal has been singled out in the debate on climate change for its high carbon dioxide emissions. as environment, social and governance factors take increasing precedence in investment, asset managers are putting pressure on energy companies to reduce their exposure to the fuel.
Every developing country in the world has faced the conflict between economic development and environmental protection, tasrif said. they are going to utilize all kinds of energy.
How come we have to jump to the other side, while the income of our people is not reaching a kind of adequate level so allow us to develop our country, tasrif added. and of course, we do care about the environment.
Coal exports are rising worldwide, not just in indonesia. coal holds a large but shrinking share as an energy source, accounting for 27 of global primary energy consumption, according to a bp report.
Tasrif, who served as ambassador to japan before becoming energy minister, said indonesia needs a new strategy for using coal. the country is working on gasification technology to raise the efficiency of coal-fired power plants, even as it develops solar, geothermal and other renewable sources.
