Restoring Peatlands and Applying Concepts for Sustainable Management in Belarus

Restoring Peatlands and Applying Concepts for Sustainable Management in Belarus

An analysis of project implementation and cost-effectiveness

This report presents an analysis of the Peatland Rewetting Project in Belarus, which explores the potential of carbon emission reductions from rewetting degraded or depleted peatland located within the Belarusian territory and the opportunity to trade credits representing these reductions in a voluntary carbon market. Peatland rewetting as applied in the Belarus Project represents an ecosystem-based approach to climate change adaptation and mitigation and is approached in this report as such. The report is available for download.
