Wise Use of Peatlands

Wise Use of peatlands can be described as the uses of peatlands for which reasonable people now and in the future will not attribute blame. 

IPS has developed a framework for Wise Use to resolve conflicts between different values and uses of mires and peatlands. Overall, the major – anthropocentric – conflicts which arise with respect to peatland use are between those who wish to develop mires and peatlands for their production or carrier functions, and others who wish to preserve them for their regulation  and non-material life-support functions.
