In 2001, Maluku Utara had 2.27Mha of primary forest*, extending over 72% of its land area. In 2021, it lost 3.57kha of primary forest*, equivalent to 2.97Mt of CO₂ emissions.
*Much of the primary forest loss in Indonesia according to the GFW data is actually within areas that Indonesia classifies as secondary forest and thus outside forest that Indonesia classifies as primary. This is because the GFW primary forest definition is not consistent with Indonesia’s official primary forest definition and classification. GFW‘s statistics on loss of primary forests in Indonesia are therefore considerably higher than the official Indonesian statistics on deforestation in primary forests.
