KOPEL will be responsible for growing seedlings, planting the trees, and maintaining each tree for three years and Danau Girang Field Centre will work with KOPEL:
(1) To measure the total carbon sequestered within forests (including below the ground) at different stages of restoration. These measurements are to be of highest international standard (denoted as Tier 3 by the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change).
(2) To understand how the amount of carbon sequestered in forests changes through time due to environmental and human interventions.
(3) To measure changes in biodiversity of plants and animals associated with reforestation.
(4) To investigate the impact of the restoration projects on communities in relation to enhancement of local livelihoods and the provision of ecosystem services.
