Indonesia has around 22.5 million ha of tropical peatlands, about half of the global total. Some estimates hold that the trees in peat swamp forests can store up to 140 tonnes of carbon per hectare, but the carbon-rich peat soils beneath the forests could store more than 20 times the carbon in the above-ground vegetation. Over the past two decades, many of these forests have been drained, deforested and burned, mostly to make way for agricultural plantations. The result has been a major increase in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) emissions from Indonesia.
