WHAT IS
RIMBA RAYA?

Rimba Raya is a living example
of an economically viable
alternative to deforestation.

  • Rimba Raya is the largest REDD+ project in the world, in terms of avoided emissions delivered to date, protecting nearly 65,000 hectares of peat swamp forest in Central Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo and avoiding more than 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions.

  • Rimba Raya is also the world’s largest privately-funded orangutan sanctuary.

  • Rimba Raya developes livelihood programmes in surrounding villages (addressing all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals) to provide education, employment and hope for the future.

  • Rimba Raya is an InfiniteEARTH Project.

Rimba Raya was the first validated REDD+ project – ever – under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and helped define the criteria by which all projects are measured.

We were also the first REDD+ forest-carbon project in the world to receive triple-gold validation under the Climate Community and Biodiversity Alliance Standard (CCBA)

  • Rimba Raya, nearly the size of Singapore, protects one of the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world.

  •  We form a vital patrolled buffer zone between the ever-encroaching bulldozers of the palm oil industry and the Tanjung Puting National Park, home to one of the last remaining wild populations of orangutans on earth.

Rimba Raya

In 2017 we built 2 libraries in the villages of Muara Dua and Ulak Batu at the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve in Borneo, Indonesia. Since then, we have noticed that community members are serious about improving their literacy levels. They actually ask for more books, a great indication that the books are being read and enjoyed by children and adults alike. These libraries are also a meeting area where people enjoy being social and learning more about what is happening in the world.

The Literacy initiatives we've implemented are such a success that we are building additional libraries in some of the other villages. In the long-term, we hope to have at least one library in each of the 14 villages.

We believe that people have a basic right to a quality education and we are doing everything we can to help them achieve that.
