Managing peatlands to cope with climate change: Indonesia’s experience

Source(s):  Indonesia - government

This document describes efforts taken by the Indonesian government to restore peatland areas to reduce wildfire risk. The document aims to share the country's experience in managing peatland wildfires through restoration, improved vigilance at all levels of government and changes in policy and practice.

The results of the new approach in managing the drivers of fires are significant. Indonesia experienced a dramatic reduction of fire spots by 93.6% from 2015 to 2017. This achievement led to a significant reduction of emissions from forests and lands, including from peatlands. In 2017, peat fire emissions were 12,5 million tons CO2, a number equal to only 1.56% of emissions from peat fires in 2015.
