Participatory Action Research to Community-Based Fire Prevention and Peatland Restoration

The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) has been working with communities at the local level to understand economic, social and political dynamics causing forest and land fires, and studying their implications. As a follow-up in 2018, with support from Singapore Cooperation Enterprise and Temasek Foundation International, CIFOR partnered with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) Australia and Center for Disaster Study University of Riau to conduct participatory action research.
