Upon restoration, the government is targeting revegetation to maintain a vegetation cover on peat which increases humidity, slows peat decomposition and decreases fire risks. Additionally, leading environmental organizations such as CIFOR, WRI, and FAO have been imposing paludiculture, a native plants cultivation technique that does not require land drainage. The method enables sustainable peat swamp forest cultivation that protects the ecosystem through peat rehabilitation, blocking the water channel, and planting the native species. This practice is expected to produce biomass (the biological materials in plants) that will support peat formation in the long run.
