Improving the Management of Peatlands and the Capacities of Stakeholders in Indonesia (Peat-IMPACTS Indonesia)
As of: September 2020
Objective and activities
Achieving the goal of sustainable, climate-smart management of Indonesia’s peatland needs a transformative landscape approach, combining technical and institutional capacities in peat landscape restoration with alignment of public and private sectors. Specifically, the project aims to 1) raise understanding of peat fire and emission risks within landscapes; 2) strengthen capacities to integrate peatland management into broader landscape governance across production–protection functions to contribute to the national commitment of GHG emission reduction (RAN-GRK) and NDC; 3) develop smallholders’ capacities to manage tree-based paludiculture that combines profitability and emission reduction; 4) formulate options across various peat landscape restoration types that link local action to externalities under conservation–livelihoods policies and partnerships; and 5) exchange lessons learnt to speed and expand impact of peat landscape restoration to the national level.
