Tropical forests in Indonesia’s Central Kalimantan province had been destined for conversion to palm oil plantations. The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve protects the forest by helping local people to improve their livelihoods without destroying the forest. It has obtained tenure rights for 30 years, and protects nearly 160,000 acres of peat swamp forest, home to over 600 wildlife species, including endangered species such as Bornean orangutans. The project supports employment, health and education initiatives, with people benefitting from jobs in sustainable farming and handcrafts, as well as access to solar lanterns, efficient cookstoves and safe water. It is set to reduce 130m tonnes of CO2 over 30 years.
