The objective of this research project is to generate solutions to the current crisis of peat degradation and fire/ haze through implementation of alternative practices, such as rewetting and reforestation. The project will demonstrate the transformability of peatland-based societies, and thus its future prospects, through the phasing out of monoculture production activity, the development of paludiculture, and the enlargement of protected peatland areas. Project research will examine several livelihood strategies addressing the environmental and social vulnerability of tropical frontier societies, thus advancing the field of global environmental studies.
* This project will be converted to PR status in mid-2016. (Research Program 1)▲PAGE TOP
