「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。

パーム油は、西アフリカ原産のアブラヤシの実を搾った油脂から作られる。日本で消費される植物油のうち菜種油についで2番目に多く消費され、国民一人当たり年に4~5リットル消費している(WWF 2015)。食用油、マーガリン・ショートニング、スナック菓子、化粧品、洗剤など幅広い用途に使用されている。また、ここ数年ではアブラヤシの種子からパーム核油を取り出した後の残ざん渣さであるパーム核殻が輸入され、国内のバイオマス発電で使用されるようになっている(滝沢 2015等)。よって、パーム油はその生産過程で生じる副産物も含めて、私たちにとって非常に身近な存在といえる。しかし、日本ではパーム油を使用する商品の原材料名には「植物油脂」と記載されるので、普段パーム油を消費しているという実感をもつのが難しく...
