Opportunity for peatland restoration projects to help track progress against UK Peatland Strategy

Date: 15 Feb 2019


The UK Peatland Strategy set a target of two million hectares of peatland in good condition, under restoration or being sustainably managed by 2040. 

To track progress against this target we need to update existing estimates. We are asking the peatland community across the UK to help us do this.

We are aiming to collate spatially explicit data on the extent of peatland restoration taking place from 2014 to 2019, including active re-wetting as well as other forms of peatland management that may be contributing to ‘passive’ re-wetting (e.g. by lowering evapotranspiration losses).

Please contact info@iucn.org.uk with any queries.

Thank you.
