Leuser Ecosystem


About Aceh Landscape
Aceh Province is a very important commodity producing area. The province also covers most of the Leuser ecosystem, which is home to unique species such as Sumatran orangutans, Sumatran elephants, and rhinos. All three species have been placed on the threatened species list by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Aceh Tamiang district, in particular, produces a number of important products such as palm oil, natural rubber, pulp and coffee.

Working closely with stakeholders, HDI aims to protect the remaining natural forests on private, state and community land, with a focus on the Leuser ecosystem. IPM has connected the Aceh Tamiang government with major palm oil buyers such as Pepsico and Unilever, which have a reputation interest in decoupling palm oil from deforestation and seeking cost-effective solutions. The government, palm oil companies and IPM are exploring the possibility of establishing a Verified Supply Zone (VSA) in Aceh Tamiang. About the Aceh District Government Pact Tamiang
