These videos (English & Bahasa indonesia) tell the story how we restored the drained and degraded peat swamp forest of Central Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia together with communities. These areas are causing huge CO2 emissions from oxidation of peat. Our work with partners under the Central Kalimantan Peatland Project (CKPP) has found an effective approach on restoring these peatlands and improving the people's livelihoods. Watch the video online.
