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. 

Status: In progress

Type: Global

Programme: Polar and Climate

Tags: climate change terrestrial water wetlands biodiversity permafrost agriculture forests green economy rainforests soil


GRID-Arendal's activities are nearly always a cooperative undertaking made possible through collaboration with partners and donors.
