The forests preservation projects
Indonesia is one of the association’s historical countries of intervention: Planète Urgence integrated the preservation of the environment into its strategy following the earthquake and tsunami on the Indonesian coast in 2004.
The restoration of mangroves is, among other things, a strategic issue for the preservation of the environment because these ecosystems between land and sea constitute natural barriers to slow down the rise of water, floods and other natural disasters.
It is therefore through the support of two projects for the preservation of forests and biodiversity that Planète Urgence is intervening in this area of the world. The MERCI project is located in the Ujung Kulon national park on the island of Java and aims to preserve the mangroves of this park and indirectly protect the last wild population of rhinos in Java. The MAHAKAM project is located in the Mahakam delta on the island of Borneo, and aims to preserve the delta’s mangroves while supporting local economic activities.
