Natural Capital Financing for Peatland

All UK devolved governments made commitments to conserve peatlands. These commitments can only be met if natural capital finance becomes a reality.

This note is prepared to raise awareness of the opportunities for financing peatland restoration and conservation, and to propose a framework for structuring such finance. This version of the note is being circulated following the seminar organised by the IUCN Peatland Programme, the Natural Capital Initiative (NCI) and the UK Network for Environmental Economists (UKNEE) on 13th September at the Royal Society for Biology. It will feed into the IUCN UK Peatland Programme’s ongoing work.
