Avoided Deforestation in Rimba Raya Reserve

Indonesia

Carbon Avoidance

Afforestation, Reforestation and Nature preservation

The Rimba Raya Reserve in Borneo’s southeast covers around 64k hectares dedicated to protecting species such as the Bornean Orangutan. So far, the project is supporting 13 community-based initiatives bordering the forest ranging from water filtration to supporting a shrimp aquaculture co-operative.

Avoided Deforestation in Rimba Raya Reserve

Indonesia's rainforests are threatened by industrial and agricultural exploitation that has resulted in the loss of almost a quarter of the country's forest cover since 1990. This poses enormous risks not only for the climate as the peat swamp forest in Borneo holds a massive carbon stock but also for wildlife. Further deforestation would result in the loss of vast carbon stocks and the forest's rich biodiversity.

The Rimba Raya Reserve is being protected by requiring land use rights for the land bordering the protected areas. Project financing to date supports 13 community-based initiatives such as water filtration, sustainable forestry management, and small businesses to create rural income sources to prevent illegal logging and poaching. By reducing the drivers of deforestation, the project annually avoids the emission of 3.5M tons of CO₂e per year.
