Our flagship project – Sumatra Merang Peatland
The Sumatra Merang project works to restore more than 22,934 hectares of peatland rainforest in the Merang biodiversity zone in Indonesia, one of the largest and deepest peat swamp areas in South Sumatra.
Climate finance is used to rehabilitate and protect this critical ecosystem at risk of drainage and exploitation from acacia and palm oil plantations. This prevents the release of significant volumes of emissions, while creating a conservation area for hundreds of unique and endangered species such as the Sumatran Tiger.
This project focuses on working with surrounding villages through a community development fund, which supports community-selected activities.
