Poster : Canal Blocking

Canal Blocking has many benefits :

  • Restoration of 'wet' peat characteristics and reduction of fire
  • Return of the carbon sequestering capacity of peatland
  • Re-establishment of the water buffer fucntion and a reduction of floads
  • Opportunity to plant economically viable species like Jelutung for rubber and Tengkawang (illevenut) for edible oil production; it opens also possibilities for different forms of aquaqulture
  • return of original biodiversity that is opten unique to peat swamp forest

Community Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment in the Context of Disaster Risk Reduction

This assessment of vulnerability level and capacity at the sites mentored by WIIP was designed to ascertain the characteristics and frequency of hazards faced by the local community, as well as the capacity possessed by the community, and the sites vulnerable to disaster impact. The authors are aware that this report is far from perfect. Field constraints were a limiting factor in the acquisition of data and information.Nevertheless, the authors hope that all the information contained in this report will be of use to the community, local village and district/municipal governments, as well as to other parties who have an interest in reducing the disaster risk at those sites, and that in future it will be a consideration in sustainable ecosystem management, and in deciding on mitigation steps for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
