The IUCN UK Peatland Programme identified the need for 8 technical reviews on key peatland topics to assist the Commission of Inquiry. Selected topics are based on priorities identified in a web survey conducted in December 2009/January 2010 with over 120 responses from 40 organisations from science, policy and practice.
Review teams have assessed the available evidence and engaged with stakeholders to build consensus on current knowledge and practice and policy needs. The emphasis of this work is to build consensus across science, policy and practice, ultimately leading to conservation action.
