Why Wetlands Matter

Wetlands cover a small percentage of the earth's surface, yet they are essential systems - they are the arteries and veins of the landscape. A world without wetlands would be a world without water, waterbirds and people. Read more...


Peatland Treasures

In Indonesia we work to protect and restore its enormously carbon-rich and biodiverse tropical peatlands. These wetlands with carbon-dense peat soils are home to many threatened species, such as the Orang utan.


Coastal resilience

Hard structures like dams, sea walls, and canals have boosted coastal development, but also resulted in the loss of valuable coastal wetlands and their services. Using the Building with Nature approach, we aim to catalyse a fundamental shift in coastal and delta planning.


Coastal wetland conservation

Together with research institutes and other NGOs, we conduct large-scale research in Indonesia to generate facts on the importance of mangroves for coastal protection and the maintenance of fish stocks.


Vibrant Coasts and Deltas

Coastal belts of mangroves contribute to security by reducing the impacts of severe storms and cyclones as well as tsunami events. Mangroves also provide food and building materials to many people living in and around mangrove forest.
