Major producers of palm oil and beef

Indonesia and Malaysia are major producers of palm oil: in 2006 these two countries accounted for 85% of total world production and 88% of global exports (FAO 2008). Over the past decade, the area covered by oil palms in Indonesia has quadrupled, covering 4.1 million hectares in 2006 (FAO 2008). In Latin America, cattle ranches are expanding rapidly (FAO 2007a) and, according to one study, accounted for an estimated 70% of deforestation in Brazil in 2007 (Malhi et al. 2008).
