Green Investments and Sustainable Development in IndonesiaMORE
Indonesia still has a long way to go towards achieving development. Although its gross national income (GNI) rose from USD 10,690 in 2015 to USD 11,220 in 2016, an estimated 93 million Indonesians continue to subsist on USD 3.10 a day (the World Bank's moderate poverty line). Poverty in Indonesia is compounded by other issues like environmental degradation. Unsustainable agricultural methods such as deforestation lead to resource depletion, further perpetuating poverty in the country.
