「森林環境2020」 特集・暮らしの中の熱帯

本稿で紹介するインドネシアの東カリマンタン州は1980年代に一部の県でアブラヤシ農園開発が始まった後、特に2000年代後半から、比較的最近になってアブラヤシ農園が急拡大しており、私の調査地を含めて、今でも天然二次林が伐採されてアブラヤシ農園が造成されている。アブラヤシ農園企業と地域住民の土地の権利を巡る争いも数多く起きており、地元の新聞で報道されることも多い。このようなアブラヤシ農園の拡大はどこまで続くのか、歯止めをかけることができるのか、それを東カリマンタン州の森林の状況、政策、制度、開発、地域住民の経済状況、土地の収用といった複数の点から考える。

本稿は『グリーンパワー』月刊2019年5月号に掲載された論考が『「森林環境2020」 特集・暮らしの中の熱帯』に再掲されたものである。

グリーンインフラに通じる考え方で、生態系を活用した防災・減災を表すEco­DRR (Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reductionの略称)が国際的に注目を集めている。これは、生態系の管理、保全や再生により災害リスクを低減するとともに、人々が日ごろから享受している様々な自然の恵みを守っていこうとするものだ。日本から海外への政府開発援助(ODA)の実施を一元的に担うJICAでは、Eco-DRRを自然環境分野の4つの戦略課題の1つとして、これまでにも関連する取り組みを実施してきた。こうした背景から、海外におけるEco-DRRの社会実装推進にJICAが果たす役割が期待されている。8月30日にグリーンインフラ研究会が開催したセミナーでは、Eco...
