Himba Raya Indonesia
We are a non-profit organization that aims to raise awareness about environmental degradation, and the need for solutions that support local communities In Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Logging and conversion to agriculture have badly degraded an enormous area of peat swamp rainforest in Central Kalimantan. This has led to significant carbon dioxide emissions and the annual recurrence of lasting fires. As a result, nearby communities have experienced the impact of harmful smoke and emerging health problems.
Our mission is to promote local community resilience toward climate change through nature-based solutions.Himba Raya Indonesia
Our pilot project is located in Pulang Pisau regency, Indonesia. It is 30.5 km from the center of Palangkaraya city. While protection and restoration of the fire-damaged areas in Pulang Pisau Regency, Central Kalimantan are needed, few sustainable business models have been developed to date that can accomplish this while also providing sustainable income for the community. We collaborate with local community farmers, nurseries, and the government, to fight the deforestation of peat-swamp forests in Central Kalimantan. Our goal is to build community resilience to climate change through nature-based solutions and community empowerment.
