The project “Building the European Peatlands Initiative: a strong alliance for peatland climate protection in Europe” is hosting a webinar to present the results of the Global Peatland Assessment (GPA) and the Global Peatland Map 2.0 with a focus in Europe. The project is funded under the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) and brings together several stakeholders across Europe such as policymakers, scientists, farmers and private landowners. Working hand in hand with the Global Peatlands Initiative, the aim is to provide up-to-date data to inform decision-makers as well as promote sustainable approaches to recover and manage peatlands.
