ICCC Starts a Study on Sustainable Peatland Management

Written by Eli Nur Nirmala Sari on .

The Indonesia Climate Change Center (ICCC) through Peatland and Peatland Mapping Cluster, in coordination with peat scientists, universities, and related institutions start a study titled “Sustainable Peatland Management Across Sectors”. The result of this study will give a recommendation in sustainable peatland management across sectors including forestry, plantation, and agriculture.

Peat is a very delicate ecosystem; therefore we should be careful in implementing sustainable peatland management across sectors. If the management is not done properly, the peat will not be sustainable. Peatland management has environmental risks, because peat is easily degraded. There are various activities on peatland management, such as land cultivation and build canals for irrigation, can increase greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). Peatland degradation occurs when the peatland management is not done properly; as a result, increasing rate of decomposition.

Urban LEDS in Indonesia

Written by Arfiana Khairunnisa on .

The Low Emission Development is a growing interest that emerges across the globe as one comprehensive respond to the climate change threats. Yet to pursue the low emissions development, national level emission reduction target is still in question, while a rapid city-scale low emission development initiative is growing. 

The Indonesia Climate Change Center (ICCC) in coordination with ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability conducted serial discussions about urban LEDS (low emission development strategy) in Jakarta and Bandung, 19-20 March 2014.
