CO2 emissions from deforestation and agricultural systems on peatland

Export citation

Indonesia has about 20 million ha peatland containing about 37,000 Mt below ground carbon. The peatland forests are under tremendous pressure from agriculture/silviculture development and logging. Over the period of 1985 to 2000 peatlands were deforested at a rate of 1.3% (about 260,000 ha) per year.
