A September 29, 2011 UN Environment Program report advocating forest conservation in Indonesia finds that in addition to the benefits of preserving water supplies and protecting rare orangutans, the undisturbed forests are worth up to US$22,000 per hectare at current carbon prices, three times more than their value if the land is cleared.

In an effort to cope with the climate change effects of increased temperature and dryness on both crops and native plants, scientists with the Water Corporation of Western Australia in September 2011 develop a material called Lime-amended BioClay, which aids the soil in retaining moisture and maintaining root health.
