2017 Global Landscapes Forum: Peatlands Matter Concept Note

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.
