Aidenvironment has been conducting research on the child labour free zone approach, on coffee in Uganda. A comparison was made of the cost-effectiveness of implementing this approach and other (less intensive) approaches of addressing child labour. The following results have recently been published by Rainforest Alliance.
The company group Sumatera Dinamika Utama (SDU) was the third largest deforester in Indonesia’s pulp and paper sector in 2020, mainly due to its plantation company PT Permata Borneo Abadi, which cleared 850 hectares of forests.
Aidenvironment monitors deforestation and fires in biodiversity hotspots and high-risk areas in tropical forest regions, including the Brazilian Cerrado. In May 2021, Aidenvironment’s system detected the first fire event in Cerrado biome that may signal the start of the 2021 fire season, an annual occurrence linked to agricultural expansion in the region.
