Many parties continue to restore burnt peatlands in Jambi, both by government and non-government organizations. Indonesia and Korea established a cooperation to restore the damaged peatlands. Most recently, the Governments of Indonesia and the Republic of Korea are collaborating to restore burnt peatlands in Jambi.

The location of this program is in the Londerang Peat Protected Forest (HLG Londerang), which covers Tanjung Jabung Timur and Muaro Jambi Regency. HLG Londerang is currently in poor condition because of the forest and land fires that have scorched the trees there. The area, which is surrounded by five oil palm plantation concessions and industrial tree plantations, needs to be restored immediately.
