The Merauke Integrated Food and Energy Estate (MIFEE) is a vast
mega-project, a plan for over a million hectares of plantations and
industrialised agriculture that threatens the people and environment
across the southern part of West Papua. Indonesian and foreign companies
have each claimed their share of the land, and offer the local Malind
people next-to-nothing in exchange for the forest that has sustained
them for countless generations.
