Title PROMOTING THE PARTNERSHIP EFFORTS TO REDUCE EMISSION FROM DEFORESTATION AND FOREST DEGRADATION OF TROPICAL PEATLAND IN SOUTH SUMATRA THROUGH THE ENHANCEMENT OF CONSERVATION AND RESOTRATION ACTIVITIES
Status COMPLETED
Executing agency
Regional Research Centre of South Sumatra
Summary Peat swamp forest (PSF) in two major islands in Indonesia, Sumatra and Kalimantan has been estimated nearly 13 millions ha. This forest has been predicted to have a major stock of carbon in their huge organic materials as major component of PSF. There will be a huge emission of carbon from this ecosystem if Deforestation, Degradation, inappropriate Conversion and forest Fire occur (DDCF). In order to reduce the negative impact of DDCF, we need to promote sustainable management, conservation of remaining habitats and the restoration of the degraded ecosystem. This condition could be achieved through the partnership efforts among stakeholders, across government authorities, local government, industrial forest plantation, palm oil plantation companies and local communities. This proposed project will be the implementation of REDDES, especially those related to awareness raising, capacity building and resolving disharmony across government authorities in peatland management and the establishment of demonstration activities in relatively high forest cover and high rate of deforestation area. The development objective of this project is to contribute to the sustainable management and conservation of PSF in South Sumatra through the enhancement of government authorities roles and responsibilities and field demonstration activities of restoration and rehabilitation of degraded ecosystem. The specific objective is to reduce deforestation and forest degradation rate and to enhance sustainable management of PSF ecosystem). The expected outputs are: (1). Institutional setting to prevent further deforestation and forest degradation improved, (2). Sound and applicable technology in restoration and rehabilitation of PSF improved, disseminated and applied, and (3). Demonstration activities with the plantation of indigenous species initiated and enhanced
