Indigenous peoples in Indonesia continue to be displaced from their customary lands at high rates, with lands turned over to government and corporate entities. This continued displacement is due to legal barriers to securing recognition as indigenous peoples and indigenous land, deforestation and land degradation. and gaps between the implementation of laws and actual practices. Consequences for indigenous peoples include physical. social. economic. and political marginalization. a nutrition transition away from traditional food systems. and disconnection to traditional cultural. spiritual. and linguistic practices. Some possible alleviations to this issue include enacting laws and policies to ensure indigenous land tenure. as well as requiring certified sustainable palm oil production.
