Restoration and Sustainable Management of Peatlands

Sixty-eight percent of the world’s peatlands can be found in Southeast Asia. Formed over centuries of waterlogged conditions, peatlands cover 3 to 5 percent of the earth’s surface but are home to more than 30 percent of the carbon stored in soil.

Potential discussion topics:

  • Policy and progress in implementation
  • Paludiculture
  • Methodological improvement in of greenhouse gas estimation from peatlands
  • Lessons from sustainable management of peatlands
