The Sumatra Merang Peatland project in Indonesia is restoring 22,000 hectares of critical peatland. Climate finance is being used to rehabilitate and protect this critical ecosystem, preventing the release of significant volumes of emissions, in addition to creating a conservation area for hundreds of unique and endangered species such as the Sumatran Tiger. This project works with surrounding villages through a community development fund, which supports community-selected projects and creates new livelihood opportunities to reduce the drivers of deforestation and the risk of wildlife poaching.

The project area is remote, only accessible by boat, and base camp is located in the south west of the project area, from where the conservation and restoration work is coordinated.
