Case Study on Community-Based Water Management in Tropical Peatland

JICA Partnership Project (JPP) “Restoration of Peatland Ecology and Livelihood Improvement through Rewetting and Revegetation toward the Prevention of Peat Fires” has been conducted in Tanjung Leban village, Riau province, Indonesia since 2017. Peatland restoration was attempted by encouraging villagers to manage water and ecosystem through weir construction and revegetation, respectively. The villagers aim for the coexistence of environmental restoration and livelihood improvement by planting native species suitable for peatland along with cash crop cultivation.
