Save the Date: "Peatland Protection is Climate Protection" 28 March 2022 / Berlin
For the 2030 climate goals: What must happen on peatlands now
29/3/2022 The Greifswald Mire Centre (GMC) and the German Association for Landscape Conservation (DVL) cordially invite you to the conference “Peatland Protection is Climate Protection on 28 March 2022 in Berlin.
By 2030, annual greenhouse gas emissions from peatland soils are to be reduced by five million tonnes of CO₂ equivalents. But how can this be achieved?
Rewetting has been proven to be a key measure to reduce the high GHG emissions from peatlands. Wet use appropriate to the site(paludiculture) offers a way to continue management. This will be discussed by scientists, practitioners and politicians, including Steffi Lemke, Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) and Cem Özdemir, Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture (BMEL, requested).
The joint project "MoKli - Realising peatland and climate protection with land users" by GMC and DVL would like to present a variety of approaches to solutions at the conference using practical examples. The programme also includes discussions on how these can be applied on a large scale, accelerated and practice-oriented in the coming years as part of climate protection strategies at different levels.
The conference is aimed at parliamentarians, representatives of ministries and authorities at federal, state and local level, representatives of associations from agriculture and water management, climate protection and nature conservation as well as other decision-makers. The event is free of charge, registration is possible online at www.mokli.de.
