Working with Indigenous Peoples
GRID-Arendal is working with Indigenous Peoples
In order to support the Global Peatlands Initiative in its initial work, GRID-Arendal will carry out a peer-reviewed rapid response assessment for peat based on existing data and information, including data to be made available by the Global Peatlands Initiative partners.
This rapid assessment will look at peatland location and extent, threats affecting peatlands and permafrost lands, what policies are in place to manage and protect them and how effective they are, and what the future may look like.
The project highlights both the challenges and the solutions for sound waste management in mountain regions.
The project delivers products of Earth Observation data to understand and monitor changes to ecosystems.
Reindeer herders are facing lost pastures and land fragmentation caused by industrial development and other land-use changes.
A series of policy assessments for different global mountain regions is being produced by GRID-Arendal and UN Environment.
