The new Indonesian policy focuses on restoring degraded peatlands and prohibits new activities that damage the hydrological functions of peatlands, including drainage and conversion to plantations.

It classifies Indonesia’s peatlands into four categories based on the topography, presence of drainage canals and recent fires.
