24-27 November 2008: International Symposium on policy and practice in peatland management, includes field trip

From 24 – 27 November CKPP will organize an international symposium on Policy and Practice in Peatland Management in Palangka Raya. The symposium will build on the experiences of CKPP, the Master Planning Project and other peatland management initiatives in Central Kalimantan and elsewhere. The aim is to draw out lessons learned that will contribute to program development and future implementation, both in Central Kalimantan and other areas of Indonesia.

The objectives of the symposium include:

  1. Sharing and expanding lesson learned gained from the CKPP and master planning activities;
  2. Sharing information on policies and practices in peatlands management;
  3. Contributing to the development of a longer-term vision for peatlands management in Indonesia;
  4. Proposing follow up action for the conservation of peatlands in Central Kalimantan and other key peatlands regions in Indonesia.


CKPP lessons learned report - Invitation for review and input

One of the goals during the CKPP seminar was to share and expand the lesson learned gained from the CKPP and master planning activities. These lessons over the three-year CKPP project are describes in the CKPP report. 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. Download the publication.

May 2008: CKPP at Convention of Biodiversity CoP9

The Central Kalimantan Peatland Project was present at the CBD COP 9 - the 9th Conference of Parties of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity in Bonn, Germany, May 2008 CKPP advocated the importance of managing and restoring peatlands - forested and deforested - for climate change mitigation.

A delegation of the project formed by the CKPP partner Wetlands International organised a side event which explained the importance of peatlands and the project's methods in restoring drained and degraded areas in Central Kalimantan.

The outcome of the Convention brought the world a step closer towards measures for large scale activities to protect and restore peatswamps just like in Central Kalimantan. More information

UNFCCC COP14 Poznan, 1-12 December 2008

Wetlands International lobbied at the UNFCCC Climate Conference to get greenhouse gas emissions from degraded peatlands addressed under UNFCCC. Check out our positions and download presentations, reports and factsheets from UN-FCCC COP14.

20-27 August 2008: Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (UNFCCC), Accra, Ghana.

Wetlands International was on behalf of CKPP present during the meeting of the UN Climate Change meeting in Accra, Ghana, August 2008. During this meeting, a working group with representatives of all countries will work on the new climate treaty for the period after 2012.

Wetlands International advocated for attention for the giant carbon dioxide emissions from peatswamp loss. These emissions amount 3 Gigatonne carbon dioxide a year. Currently these are ignored. See our paper (one A4) for our agenda at this meeting, and an article in ECO, the daily news from Climate Action Network (CAN) of which Wetlands International is a member.

December 2007: UN climate summit Bali

From 3-14 December 2007 the UN Climate Change Conference took place in Nusa Dua in Bali negotiating a new international climate agreement.
