Riau may become a desert in 40 years Deforestation may turn the resource-rich province of Riau into a desert in 40 years unless preventive measures are taken, the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) said. The province's Spatial Layout Plan (RTRWP) up to 2015 includes converting protected forests and water catchment areas into timber estates, which will likely turn Riau into a vast barren land. The situation is worsened by illegal logging and the rapid switch to mono-cultivation where land is cleared to grow only one type of cash crop, the WWF revealed.
