Peatlands are the world’s largest carbon sinks, but often these landscapes are situated in areas where competing interests of conservation and development must be carefully negotiated. The Global Landscapes Forum: Peatlands Matter event will bring together local and global policymakers, stakeholders and private sector interests to identify landscape-level solutions and accelerate measurable action on the ground in negotiating conflicting land-use demands in these vital biomes.
