About this project

Peatlands and forests are important carbon sinks that stabilise our climate. The destruction of tropical forests as well as the drainage of peatlands do not only release CO2 into the atmosphere but also destroy important ecosystems that are essential for biodiversity and the livelihood of many people.
The combination of a climate protection project in Germany for peatland restoration with an international acknowledged peat-forest project benefitting rural development in Indonesia gives you the opportunity to protect unique peatland ecosystems while supporting people in developing countries who have to cope with the consequences of climate change today.

MoorFutures –Schleswig-Holstein and Brandenburg, Germany

In the course of this project, an area of 77.7 hectares is to be rewetted on a permanent basis. As a result, the restored polders will develop into a mosaic of areas with rushes, reeds and wetland shrubbery as well as shallow ponds. The combination of wet and semi-dry peatland, open water and shrubs will result in a significant increase in the number of species of conservation interest.
At the same time, restored peatlands absorb a substantial amount of greenhouse gases. Therefore, the rehabilitation of peatlands is an important contribution to global and regional climate protection.

Katingan Mentaya Project, Indonesia

The project is the largest program of its kind, equivalent to taking 2,000,000 cars off the road each year. In partnership with local communities, carbon revenues are utilised to ensure natural forest restoration and protection, through activities aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
