The majority of Indonesia`s poor live in rural areas that are rich in natural resources, but illegal logging, land conversion for agriculture and mining, and other unsustainable land use practices threaten the country`s ability to sustain economic growth and reduce poverty. The majority of greenhouse gas emissions result from deforestation, loss of peatlands, and other land use changes; though, emissions from energy and industrial sources are growing rapidly. Many Indonesians, especially in remote rural areas, suffer from a lack of reliable electricity or depend on expensive and unreliable diesel generation.
