  • Return of the carbon sequestering capacity of peatland
  • Re-establishment of the water buffer fucntion and a reduction of floads
  • Opportunity to plant economically viable species like Jelutung for rubber and Tengkawang (illevenut) for edible oil production; it opens also possibilities for different forms of aquaqulture
  • return of original biodiversity that is opten unique to peat swamp forest
