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 works closely with the local inhabitants of the 14 villages in our concession- located in the #Seruyan District in Central #Kalimantan on the island of Borneo- #Indonesia. In order for us to understand what is important in the lives of the local people, they have been given Microsoft phones so they can document some of their daily activities. Here are some of those pictures. The image captions have been written by Nisa Jalil (Chaca) and our colleagues in Indonesia.
