About the EU-SUPA Component 2 project

The European Union (EU) has awarded a coalition of World Resources Institute (WRI), Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Centre (TRCRC), and Yayasan Inisiatif Dagang Hijau (IDH) a grant to mitigate haze within ASEAN by enhancing sustainable use of peatlands (SUPA). The project consists of two components, the first one will work with State Actors and the second component, which will be implemented by the coalition, will focus on encouraging non-state actor (NSA) participation in sustainable management and use of peatlands through collective actions. The direct targets of the second component include village communities, Civil Society Organizations, academician, researchers, private sectors, and financial institutions. The three-year grant (October 2019 – October 2022) will result in:

  • The increase of knowledge about sustainable peatlands management among NSAs;
  • The availability of an innovative business hub to facilitate collaborative business development in peatlands;
  • The increase in awareness and capacity among NSAs to manage the peatlands sustainably.

Ultimately, the activities in this program aim to change the current public perception that peatlands is a wasteland and increase public support for peatlands management in the long-term. Peatlands can have immense ecological and economic value if managed sustainably, reducing peat fires and therefore haze within Southeast Asia in the process.
