Peatland Hydrology Assessment in North Sumatera

(code: Peatland-NorthSumatera)

The Peat and Mangrove Ecosystem (PME) Project in Indonesia is part partnership between government of Indonesia and the Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The project focus on climate change “Mitigation, Adaptation through Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods in Indonesia’s Peat and Mangrove Ecosystems”.

Conservation International (CI) is the lead agency for implementing and executing the project through works in partnership with stakeholders at the national and local levels.

North Sumatra is one of our pilot provinces with a population of approximately 14.5 million people. It is approximately 7.2 million Ha in total area, of which 3.7 million Ha is forest area and 0.3 million Ha is peatland area. The peatland conversion was counted almost 80% of peatland have been drained and converted to palm oil plantations. Rapid deforestation occurred during 2000-2012 with deforestation rates in forests at over 3% from 2000 to 2005, increasing to nearly 6% from 2005 to 2010, and decreased from 2010 to 2012 at 3%. If North Sumatra continued with a business-as-usual scenario, it is estimated that by 2035 roughly 0.35 million Ha out of 1.9 million Ha of remaining primary forest cover, could be lost – impacting animal habitats, biodiversity, land degradation, and resulting in emissions of around 150 MT CO2e.

The key remaining forests are predominantly located in the west part of North Sumatera across four districts: Mandailing Natal, South Tapanuli, North Tapanuli, and Pakpak Barat.
