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

  • Rimba Raya is located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, and is one of the largest REDD+ peat swamp forest projects in the world, avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions

  • Rimba Raya’s activities are conducted on more than 64,000 Ha, comprised of a Concession License of 36,950+ Ha, a Collaboration Area (with TNTP) of 18,640+ Ha and a Management Agreement area of 8,900+ Ha.

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

  • 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.

There is a strong link between food security and women.Women and men at the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve were able to attend a training session on food production and this is the result!
'Women produce between 60 and 80 per cent of the food in most developing countries and are responsible for half of the world's food production, yet their key role as food producers and providers and their critical contribution to household food security is only recently becoming recognised.'- Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
