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
- Methodological improvement in of greenhouse gas estimation from peatlands
- Lessons from sustainable management of peatlands
- Land and forest fire management
