5 Mar 2019
The FACCE ERA-GAS funded PEATWISE project ”Wise use of drained peatlands in a bio-based economy: development of improved assessment practices and sustainable techniques for mitigation of greenhouse gases” published its first policy brief “Policy Brief #1 climate mitigation measures for drained peatlands”
The PEATWISE project set out to explore the potential of various peatland management practices to sustain production while mitigating greenhouse gas emissions across Northern Europe. This policy brief outlines the mitigation measures in testing phases, presents the PEATWISE case studies, and provides recommendations based on the results from PEATWISE study sites in 2018, a year of extreme heat and drought.
