The Peatland Compendium was created in 2009 as part of a Defra-funded project to produce a compendium of UK peat restoration and management. A report was produced from questionnaires, interviews and survey of scientific work. Alongside this, the project organised a peat restoration conference at which restoration issues were discussed in workshops with practitioners and policy-makers.
Partners in the project included Universities of Manchester, Leeds, and Durham, Defra, Natural England, Forestry Commission, Welsh Assembly, Environment Agency, Countryside Council for Wales (now Natural Resources Wales) and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency.
The results of the project have been published in Peatland Restoration and Ecosystem Services and the reports can be downloaded below.
The Peatland Compendium website was managed by Moors for the Future Partnership from 2009 – 2016 and is now administered by the IUCN Peatland Programme.
