Provisional report of the Central Kalimantan Peatland Project

In December 2005 the Central Kalimantan Peatland Project (CKPP) was established with the overall objective of conserving the natural and economic value of the peatswamp areas of Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. This report describes the experience and lessons learned over the three-year project. It explains the project's approach, the challenges of succesful peatland restoration and conservation, the project's achievements, and future opportunities for this area and other peatland regions in Indonesia.

Through the production of this draft document, the CKPP consortium would like to invite comments from people interested in CKPP’s work.




The draft report is intended to enable review and inputs from a wide range of parties who have engaged with the project over the past three years. In particular, we are interested in ensuring that this document fulfils the needs for specific infofmation related to the project’s approaches, methodologies, and the state of science.

This document was also used as a basis for discussion during the Indonesian Symposium on Policy and Practice in Peat and Lowland Management to be held in Palangka Raya from 24-26 November, 2008.

At the time this provisional report was prepared, evaluation and documentation of the project’s results were on-going. A final report and executive summary will be produced in early 2009. The final version will integrate inputs received in response to the current version, as well as results from the evaluations and documentation.
