IMCG Cooperation

IPS and the International Mire Conservation Group (IMCG) meet regularly to discuss current cooperation projects.

The most recent meetings were held in Valencia, Spain in 2002, at the 12th International Peat Congress in Tampere, Finland in 2004, in Espoo, Finland in July 2006 and informally in Tullamore in 2008. A joint excursion was held in June 2007 in Sweden.

Examples of this fruitful cooperation are the book on "Wise Use of Mires and Peatlands" (2002) and the new joint journal "Mires and Peat" (2006). Many IMCG members participated also in the consultation process for the Strategy for Responsible Peatland Management.
