In the final episode of the season, we zoom out: palm oil companies are traveling to new countries in search of cheap land and easy land acquisition laws. Toolkits resisting land grabbing by palm oil are traveling, too. Mapping and monitoring initiatives from Indonesia have moved across borders to take root in Liberia in Western Africa.
In our last episode, we get into what happens when mapping is stuck in bureaucratic limbo. In order to document harm from rampant resource extraction and loss of livelihoods, communities are turning to monitoring their environments. You’ll hear from lawyer Andiko Mancayo, policy expert Anne-Sophie Gindroz, and several others you’ll recognize from earlier in the season.
