Tropical peat watch

SARVISION BV (NL)

Summary

Indonesia counts around 15 million ha of peat, and a substantial part of these have been converted into plantations (in particular oil palm and acacia) or have been degraded.

Both plantations and degraded peatlands are generally drained, primarily through networks of canals.

This project is developing and testing a set of EO based approaches to support improved management and restoration planning for peatlands in two large provinces in Sumatra and Kalimantan. The Indonesian stakeholders involved are LAPAN (the national space agency) and BRG (the national peat restoration agency).
