Peatlands – guidance for climate change mitigation by conservation, rehabilitation and sustainable use

This report by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) is aimed as a handbook for policy makers, technical audiences and others interested in peatlands. The publication informs on management and finance options to achieve emission reductions and enhance other vital ecosystem services from peatlands. The report provides guidance on these action: securing undrained peatlands to prevent emissions, rewetting drained peatlands to reduce emissions and adapting management of peatlands that cannot be rewetted.
