Smoke on Water – Countering global threats from peatland loss & degradation

5 days ago

In order to support the Global Peatlands Initiative in its initial work, GRID-Arendal has carried out a peer-reviewed rapid response assessment for peatlands based on existing data and information, including data made available by the Global Peatlands Initiative partners.

This rapid assessment looks 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.
