  Workshop on Enhancing Sustainability of Forestry Practices on Peatlands

Date : 27-28 June 2012

Venue: IPB International Convention Center, Botani Square, Bogor, INDONESIA

Degradation and conversion of peatlands is a major cause of GHG emission and also fires and associated transboundary haze which has been identified as a major environmental problem in the ASEAN region.

Carbon conservation and reducing climate change have become major environmental issues in the global arena.
