Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve

Rimba Raya is an extraordinary example of a sustainable and economically viable alternative too deforestation. Situated in the heart of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, it stands as one of the largest projects dedicated to REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) in peat swamp forests worldwide.
Project ID: RRBR

Rimba Raya has successfully avoided the release of an astounding 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions. This remarkable project, managed by InfiniteEARTH, focuses on generating carbon credits from the protection of High Conservation Value (HCV) peat swamp forests within its carbon accounting area. As a result, Rimba Raya plays a vital role in safeguarding one of the most critically endangered ecosystems on the planet.

One of the key contributions of Rimba Raya is its establishment of a buffer zone between the palm oil industry and the renowned Tanjung Puting National Park. This pristine park is home to one of the last remaining wild populations of Orangutans on Earth, making its protection of utmost importance. By acting as a shield against encroachment and unsustainable practices, Rimba Raya ensures the preservation of this invaluable habitat and the survival of these magnificent creatures.

In summary, Rimba Raya stands as a living testament to the possibilities of sustainable development and environmental conservation. Through its dedication to carbon emission reduction, livelihood programs, and protection of precious ecosystems, Rimba Raya paves the way for a brighter and more sustainable future for both humanity and the natural world.

Through the implementation of various livelihood programs, it addresses all 17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These initiatives aim to provide education, employment opportunities, and a sense of hope for the future. By actively engaging with local villages, Rimba Raya contributes to the well-being and empowerment of the community members.
