Indonesia is also taking a different approach, with support from the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), an intergovernmental organization that supports government partners in their transition towards economic growth that simultaneously achieves poverty reduction, social inclusion and environmental sustainability. The Institute and the Ministries of Development Planning, Environment and Forestry and Indonesia’s Peatlands Restoration Agency are working together to develop an integrated business model in collaboration with implementing agencies for peatlands restoration. Under this model, government investment is committed to protecting and restoring the core zones of peatlands (in financial and political terms). This in turn will build investor confidence and channel private capital towards sustainable economic activities in the outer zones of the peatland area.
