Construction begins on a community dam to block a canal draining peatlands for plantations in Paduran Village, Sebangau Sub-district, Pulang Pisau Regency, Central Kalimantan province, Indonesia. The province was the epicentre of Indonesia’s 2015 forest fires disaster.

The direct action to restore peatlands is being carried out by the local community along with Greenpeace and local organisations Save our Borneo and the Center for International Cooperation in Sustainable Management of Tropical Peatland (CIMTROP) at the University of Palangka Raya.

Forest and peatland destruction, mainly for plantations, is both a major cause of forest fires and the source of Indonesia’s largest contribution to climate change. Greenpeace calls on the Indonesian government and CEOs of big palm oil and paper companies to work together to ban trade with any company that continues to drain peatlands and destroy forests.
