Peat is a natural accumulation of organic material formed from the remnants of plants that accumulate in swamps. It plays a crucial role in shaping balance, stability, and environmental productivity. Its formation process spans tens of thousands of years, displaying diverse characteristics across regions. Globally, peatlands cover hundreds of millions of hectares, with Indonesia boasting significant tropical peatland areas. Conservation efforts for peat and its biodiversity have been a primary focus since the 1990s. The Government Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia No. PP. 57 of 2016 provides the legal foundation for sustainable peat management. Measures such as the identification of degraded areas, ecosystem restoration, and the suspension of concession grants in peatlands are crucial steps in addressing environmental deterioration. To ensure effective peatland management, it is imperative to integrate contemporary information, technology, and standardization into ecosystem restoration assessments. Policymakers must consistently evolve evidence-based policy frameworks proven successful in the field. Given the advancements in information technology, innovative approaches and evidence-based policies can pave the way for sustainable peatland management. Embracing this methodology will not only boost the efficiency and effectiveness of peatland management in Indonesia but also ensure the long-term sustainability of this crucial ecosystem, benefiting both the environment and its inhabitants.
