Kyoto Protocol and National Accounting for Peatlands

The IUCN UK Peatland programme has published a briefing that describes the changes to accounting for peatlands introduced as a result of the conference in Durban, last year.

This information is not easy to digest, but the news is good in that drainage and re-wetting of peatlands can now be taken into account to meet emissions reduction targets.

This is recommended reading for all with an interest in peatland management, and especially for those attending the meeting of the Forum's Peatland Working Group on 21 February in Aberdeen.
