Support Facility for the Peat Restoration (Badan Restorasi Gambut)

In late 2015, the Government of Indonesia, as a response to recurring and devastating forest fires on drained peatlands and to meet its national climate mitigation goals, decided to establish Badan Restorasi Gambut/The Peat Restoration Agency (BRG). Over the next 5 years BRG is tasked with coordinating the restoration of 2 million hectares degraded peatlands across 8 provinces. As a newly established government agency working under public pressure to provide socially and technically acceptable solutions that will prevent fires and further degradation, BRG has requested international partners to provide fast- track support (financial, technical, political). This project aims to do so through provision of short-term UNDP-support develop the necessary institutional systems and capacity.
