We are proud to present our Interreg Care-Peat project. Within Care-Peat 5 knowledge institutes and 4 nature organisations from 5 different countries will work together to restore the natural potential of peatlands to save carbon. Today, many peatlands in the northern hemisphere are degraded, and emit rather than store carbon. Within Care-Peat nature organisations will work with landowner groups to demonstrate the carbon saving potential of peatlands using pilots. At the same time, knowledge institutions will work together to develop and test new techniques for improved peatland carbon assessment. Please find more information about the project and its partners here.
Sounds interesting? You are warmly invited to the Start Conference of Care-Peat on Wednesday 12 June 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom. At the conference you will learn more about the project and meet the different partners and stakeholders. We will also bring together different EU-projects on peatland restoration and discuss how to cooperate. LIFE Peat Restore, Interreg Carbon Connects and Interreg CANAPE are already confirmed to be there. Lastly, you can participate in several workshops about measuring methods in the pilots.
For questions, please contact Katrien Wijns, project coordinator Care-Peat.
