Rattan is gathered from the rainforest without causing damage and we are working directly with village communities using a unique mix of unprocessed, wild natural rattan to produce baskets and furniture which also offer an alternative source of revenue for people in the Borneo rainforest areas.

The Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project aims to restore and conserve 203,570 hectares of peat swamp forest through reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation plus sustainable forest management and carbon stock enhancement (REDD+) scheme in the Kotawaringin Timur and Katingan districts located in Central Kalimantan, on the island of Borneo in Indonesia.

The project also aims to ensure social and environmental safeguards through community development programs and biodiversity conservation in the project zone.

The project seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within the ERC area by avoiding previously planned deforestation from land conversion and restoring and conserving peat swamp forests, while safeguarding community and biodiversity benefits.

Emily Readett-Bayley is working with project zone communities to create a market for the unique rattan products that can be made from rattan grown in the forest, building on the local tradition of using unprocessed, natural coloured, waste rattan to make super strong working baskets and furniture.
