RER is managed by highly competent leaders who are dedicated to its cause and are tireless in furthering its agenda.
RER receives guidance from an eminent Advisory Board which includes both Indonesian as well as international third-party experts.
RER is a close partnership between APRIL, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and BIDARA. Each partner has a specific role and responsibility that directly guides and addresses the complex challenges of landscape restoration.
BIDARA is working on building the self-reliance of two rural communities in the Kampar Peninsula (Pulau Muda and Segamai village) that are immediately adjacent to the RER area. Applying an Eco-village model, a BIDARA community officer works to build capacity of individual farmers and community groups to utilise ‘no-burn’ agriculture practices, organic farming techniques, and animal husbandry.
Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is an international NGO established in 1903. Its mission is to conserve threatened species and ecosystems by using sustainable solutions that combine science and human needs. As RER’s technical partner, FFI manages key elements of the project and is responsible for essential studies related to biodiversity, climate and communities in the Kampar Peninsula and Padang Island.
