SBY Inauguration Letter

Laporan - 20 Oktober, 2009
Greenpeace delivered a letter and a bouquet of flowers with the message “continue but don’t continue deforestation” in order to congratulate President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on his inauguration for his second presidential term, and for declaring his intention to take leadership in the battle against climate change by reducing Indonesia’s greenhouse emissions by 26% by 2020. Greenpeace called upon President Yudhoyono to personally attend the crucial Climate Summit in Copenhagen in December and honor his commitments while prioritizing the implementation of a moratorium on deforestation in his hundred-day program. Such a Presidential declaration would be legally enforceable and a necessary step to protect Indonesia’s forests and peat lands effectively.
