Peat Related Professional Experience/History: From my experiences working on North Sumatra, Riau, South Kalimantan, and Central Kalimantan, I saw the differences perspective peatlands between local community and stakeholders in these places. As a scientist, I see the peat and the peatlands are very fragile ecosystem and need a proper management. On the other hand, the local peoples in Sumatra see peatlands as the land sources that necessary to developed for human prosperity. The local peoples in South Kalimantan see peatlands as a trouble due to the difficulties to develop for urban area or rice fields. Another story comes from Central Kalimantan peoples that see peatlands as the mystical areas and should be preserved as the forests rather than agriculture areas. Recently, all these areas have in common is fires in the dry season and floods during the rainy season. This gives a bad impact on the local community. According to my latest research that there are also the differences in weather patterns (drought) between areas in Sumatra and Kalimantan. Unfortunately, many people think all the same and do the same treatment. Topography and peat formation are different, too. In fact, the various aspects of peatland in Indonesia areas require the unique management respectively.
