About GLF Peatlands 2024


Peatlands cover 3-4% of Earth’s land but store a third of global soil carbon. Despite their importance, 12% are degraded, contributing 4% of human-induced emissions.

Degradation, driven by agriculture and forestry, causes environmental and social issues like fires and economic damage. Managing peatlands effectively requires collaboration across sectors.

The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) Peatlands 2024 Hybrid Conference brought together global stakeholders to address gaps in peatland science, policy, and practice. Held alongside the UNFCCC Bonn Climate Change Conference, it explored peatlands’ roles in carbon storage, biodiversity, and water regulation.



Discover insights from Indonesia’s Peat IMPACTS project, aiming to enhance sustainable peatland management. Addressing challenges through governance strengthening, sustainable supply chains, and climate governance, Peat IMPACTS aligns with Indonesia’s NDC goals. This session highlights project outcomes and synergies with Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) Indonesia and the International Tropical Peatland Center (ITPC).




Dr. Sonya Dewi, Principal Investigator of Peat IMPACTS; Feri Johana, Project Coordinator; Regina Ariyati and Ir. H Adi Yani from provincial governments; and Dr. Agus Justianto, Director of Sustainable Forest Management in Indonesia.
