With over 15 million hectares of tropical peatlands, Indonesia has extensive experience and a multitude of lessons on peatlands management. One of the key lessons learned from Indonesia is the need to avoid the mistakes made by the country in the exploitation of its peatlands and forests in general. As such Indonesia’s history of peat management would serve as an important cautionary tale for how two Congo’s and Peru governments planned to manage their peat forests.
The session will encourage open dialogue in lesson learned from Indonesia on how to govern peatland knowledge to ensure Indonesia sustainable ecosystem and to discuss on similarities, differences and figure out how Indonesia peatland policy adaptable for RoC, DRC, and Peru.
