‘Global Peatland Restoration – Demonstrating Success’, a publication from the IUCN UK Peatland Programme and CEM Thematic Group on Peatlands, was launched in Brussels in 2014, and showcases successful restoration projects across the world. 

The UK is among the world-leaders in peatland restoration and through the IUCN UK Peatland Programme, a partnership of government and public organisations is working to safeguard healthy peatlands that can bring benefits to society. A selection of case studies have been brought together in ‘UK Peatland Restoration – Demonstrating Success’ to showcase the deliver of peatland restoration results through an ecosystem approach.  

Where possible projects featuring in these publications are also available to view on the Projects Map
