13 Nov 2020

HOSTS: Global Peatlands Initiative with UN Environment Programme (UNEP)

This session will take you on a two-part journey to some of the most rare, remote and unique peatlands in the world. Peatlands can be a safe haven for species, they are carbon powerhouses, and they provide services to us all that need to be valued. Join the Global Peatlands Initiative to discover why peatlands are a critical habitat for biodiversity, the climate, people and our health. Demonstrating the power of partnership, the organization will share examples, experiences and strategies to show you why peatlands are, indeed, a Super Nature Based Solution.
