Peatland fire assessment: Reducing vulnerability, enhancing restoration success

Presented by Solichin Manuri, a Senior Advisor at Daemeter Consulting, at Webinar "A Synthesis and Way Forward", 17 December 2020.

The speaker shared the principle that peatlands are sufficiently wet and covered with primary vegetation or sustainable commodities depending on the ecosystem functions and land use types. Speaker also shared potential criteria derived from that principle i.e. fire occurrence, natural and climax species abundance, and the number of hotspots, size of burned areas and depth of burn peatland, and the number of pioneer and fire climax species as indicators derived from those criteria.

Peatland fire assessment: Reducing vulnerability, enhancing restoration success

  1. 1. Peatland Fire Assessment: Reducing Vulnerability, Enhancing Restoration Success (Session #2a) Solichin Manuri Daemeter Consulting
  2. 2. C and I approach as an effective tool for peatland restoration monitoring • C and I approach is crucial tool for peatland restoration monitoring • The tool provides comprehensive understanding on degraded peatland that need to be restored • Fire occurrence is one of the main criteria in defining degraded peatland. • Degraded peatlands are often drained through canal development, lead to drier peat land. Dry peatlands are susceptible to peat fires • Recurrent peat fires indicate severe degradation of peatland • Apart for burned areas, burned depth is also useful indicator of peatland restoration.
  3. 3. Potential criteria and associated indicators that can be useful in monitoring and assessment of peatlands • Principle - Peatlands are sufficiently wet and covered with primary vegetation or sustainable commodities, depending on the ecosystem function and land use types • Criteria • Mean water level is at certain height with less variation or difference during wet and dry season • Fire occurrence is reduced, burned area is reduced in particular during pro longed dry seasons. • Natural and climax species are abundant • Indicators • Water level measured at canals and peatlands • Number of hotspots, size of burned areas, depth of burn peatland • Number of climax species; proportion of climax species, pioneer and fire- climax species
