In January 2015, during Asia Liberty Forum in Kathmandu, Nepal, our Managing Director Mr Rainer Heufers gave a speech on Free Market Environmentalism. The speech addressed that neither a logging moratorium nor large development funds have prevented rapid deforestation in Indonesia. Instead, public policies must set the right incentives for people to value and protect their forests. The government must also avoid protectionist market interventions and allow for technological progress that enhances agricultural productivity.
