Project Achievements

Partners & IAG

Five project partners (BOS, CARE-Indonesia, University of Palangka Raya, Wetlands International and WWF-Indonesia) have formed a consortium to protect and restore central Kalimantan's peatswamps and to support its local communities. All partners have extensive working experience in the region and a large network of local contacts at both community and governmental levels.

The partners are specialised in different fields, ranging from environmental protection to economic development and healthcare. Together these disciplines form an excellent base for an integrated approach to resolve the complex problematic situation in Kalimantan's peatlands.

The project would be nowhere without the full support and expertise of local authorities, especially the government of Central Kalimantan.  The project tries to involve them as much as possible in all components of the project. To enable smooth communication, these actors are organised in a Local Advisory Group, which is chaired by the provincial Vice-Governor. An International Advisory Group provides advice at the international level.

BOS Foundation

Much of our knowledge for conducting the CKPP activities is gained in earlier work, especially from the CCFPI project (2001-2006). The CCFPI project is a carbon sequestration initiative being implemented by WI-IP and Wildlife Habitat and in cooperation with PINSE and WBH Foundations, with funding from the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Working with local partner organizations, the project is designed to promote the sustainable management of forest and peatlands in order to increase their capacity to sequester and store carbon, and to improve local livelihoods.

CKPP International Advisory Group

The International Advisory Group is established to provide advice to the CKPP and to share the experiences gained from the project with the Dutch public. It is comprised of a multi-disciplinary team of experts and focuses on the complex scientific, policy and social issues of concern to the project. Members are drawn from academic, government and civil society circles in The Netherlands and Central Kalimantan.
