|Title of Feasibility Study (FS)||Feasibility Study on Sustainable Peatland Management in Indonesia under NAMAs|
|Main Implementing Entity||Shimizu Corporation|
|FS Partner(s)||[Indonesian side]: Ministry of Public Works, Jambi University|
[Japanese side]: Telecommunication Technology Committee
|Location of Project Activity||Indonesia (Jambi, Sumatra province)|
|Category of Project Activity||Peatland mitigation in coastal lowlands|
|Summary of FS Report||PDF (890KB)|
|Description of Project(s)/Activity(ies)||Project Site: Irrigation area in Tanjun Jabun Timur, Jambi, Sumatra province, Area of approximately 10,000 ha. |
- New gates installation and their improved management including existing gates to increase the groundwater table (GWT) in the peatland, resulting that CO2 emission due to aerobic decomposition of peat can be suppressed.
- With GWT rise, crop yield can be increased contributing to the sustainable development of local communities.
|Reference Scenario||Burn agriculture has been observed and is expected to be the normal activity if there is no project activity. Therefore, BAU would be the most reasonable reference scenario for this project.|
|Monitoring Plan||GWT will be monitored continuously in every subarea where GWT can be assumed nearly equal. Initial carbon content of peatland shall be evaluated in each subarea to quantify maximum potential emission amount.|
|Estimation of GHG Emission Reductions||455,000 tCO2/ha/year|
(*MRV = Measurement, Reporting, and Verification)
|Existing rules for emission reduction certifying such as CDM, J-VER, VCS can be referred to establish MRV for NAMAs. Typical procedure can be as follows;
1.Methodology development (in case there is no existing methodology),
2. PDD development,
5. Reporting of emission reductions,
6. Verification by authorities.
|Environmental Impact Analysis||GWT can be recovered to the previous level through the project, which was the original condition of the peatland, and therefore no environmental impact is expected. |
(i.e. Improvement of Local Environmental Problems)
|By applying the project activity in an area where peatland burning occurs, the fire can be suppressed. |
|Contribution to Sustainable Development in Host Country||By controlling GWT appropriately, crop yield can be increased, which contributes to the sustainable development in host country.|
