Strategy for Responsible Peatland Management

The Strategy for Responsible Peatland Management was published as a joint stakeholder document in 2010. The document contains information on the extent of peatlands, their values and the use of peatlands and peat worldwide.

It formulates strategic objectives and actions for biodiversity, hydrology and water regulation, for climate and climate change processes, for economic activities, for after-use, rehabilitation and restoration, for human and institutional capacity and information dissemination, as well as for the engagement of local people and good governance.
