Restoration up in smoke: losing the battle to protect peatlands
A new Greenpeace Indonesia report, Restoration Up in Smoke: Losing the Battle to Protect Peatlands, identifies major contradictions in the Indonesian government’s claims to meet its peatland restoration targets. Greenpeace analysis shows that repeated fires have occurred in the priority peatland restoration areas. Findings also show the presence of licensed palm oil and pulpwood plantations, coupled with new licenses on peatlands and in the areas designated for restoration. Greenpeace debunks the government’s peat restoration claims and reveals the systemic failures to deliver on peatland protection measures.
