Carbon Emissions from Drained and Degraded Peatland in Indonesia and Emission Factors for MRV of Peatland Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The Kalimantan Forests and Climate Partnership (KFCP) program was set up to design and demonstrate methods to reduce carbon emissions from degraded peatlands and to quantify the effects of these interventions. Within KFCP, the studies reported here were set up to investigate the relations between land cover, water table depth, drainage intensity, subsidence rate, fire frequency and carbon emissions. A key target was to achieve robust GHG emission factors (emission factors) for degraded and burnt peatlands in Indonesia. This report presents a brief ‘summary for technicians and practitioners’ of the contents of three scientific papers that are in preparation, plus a translation of the work into emission factors.
