Rimba Raya Specification
In recent years, forest coverage in Kalimantan has decreased drastically due to forest areas being cleared for agricultural use. This REDD+ project aims to preserve over 47,000 hectares of tropical peat swamp ecosystem on the coast of Kalimantan, reducing Indonesia’s emissions whilst protecting the integrity of the Tanjung Puting National Park. In the project’s absence, the peatland area would be converted to palm oil plantations by logging and systematic drainage of the peatland.
