    Peat (/ p iː t /), sometimes known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs. The peatland ecosystem covers million square kilometres and is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the . The database contains analogue and GIS maps, reports, observations, pictures, and is supported by the Peatland and Nature Conservation International Library PeNCIL.

    General values for peatland emissions under different land uses have been agreed by the International Panel on Climate Change enabling countries to include emissions from damaged peatlands and savings from restored areas within national greenhouse gas accounting (IPCC.   1. Introduction Land use and climate change. Climate change is an increasing priority for the land sector, with innovative policies required to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and manage unavoidable climate risks (IPCC, a).Within this agenda, afforestation has been recognised as a key intervention, usually to redress substantial losses from historic .

Conservation Handbook |The IUCN UK Peatland Programme exists to promote peatland restoration in the UK and advocates the multiple benefits of peatlands through partnerships, strong science, sound policy and effective practice.

The Irish Peatland Conservation Council (IPCC) published our new action plan entitled Ireland’s Peatland Conservation Action Plan – halting the loss of peatland biodiversity during The aim of this plan is to develop a national strategy for the conservation and management of all peatland types in Ireland.

IPCC Policy and Case Work is a vital part of IPCC peatland conservation and management handbook book work to achieve our mission of conserving a representative sample of the peatlands of Ireland for people to enjoy now and in the future.

We have a Peatland Conservation Action Plan in place which sets out our policies to achieve this mission. On a day to day basis in the office IPCC respond to invitations and public.

IPCC’s mission and work is to conserve a representative sample of Irish peatlands for future generations to enjoy. Our Work Involves: purchasing and protecting peatland nature reserves for wildlife and habitat conservation; maintaining a database of peatland sites of conservation importance in Ireland.

The Committee of Management of the IPCC are delighted to present the Annual Report and Financial Accounts of the Irish Peatland Conservation Council for The accounts were adopted at the AGM held on the 15th July   In Britain, Rowell’s extremely useful Peatland Management Handbook laid the framework for a more professional approach to the subject.

Projects such as English Nature’s Lowland Peatland Project and Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Raised Bog Conservation Project shared information around the bog management community.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) considers “organic soil” to be soil with at least 12 to 18 percent of organic carbon, depending on the clay content (IPCC ).

- Meet the IUCN UK Peatland Programme challenge: 1 million hectares of peatland in good condition, under restoration agreements and being sustainably managed.

Establish the current baseline and begin to define management plans. - 50% of the peatland resource is conserved in good condition.

- Target (95%) is achieved. Examples of this fruitful cooperation are the book on “Wise Use of Mires and Peatlands” () and the joint journal “Mires and Peat” ().

Many IMCG members participated also in the consultation process for the Strategy for Responsible Peatland Management.

Customer Reviews. A Review was produced for the Commission of Inquiry and examines current and future policy measures affecting the sustainable management of peatlands.

The Review looks at existing conservation and landscape designations, national strategies, planning and other legal frameworks, codes of practice and provide an assessment of exemplars of good practice.

Cambridge Core - Ecology and Conservation - Peatland Restoration and Ecosystem Services - edited by Aletta Bonn. Our Vision Our long term vision is that peatlands in the UK function to their full potential and that there is no further loss of peatland ecosystems, providing cost effective solutions for climate change, water and biodiversity.

Investment in peatland restoration is needed now, securing the benefits they provide and avoiding the costly consequences of their deterioration.

Launching the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) established an interface between the scientific community and policy makers comparable to the IPCC. It reflects as much the hope as the political challenge connected to the ecosystem service approach bridging nature conservation and human well-being.

Peatlands are a type of wetlands which are among the most valuable ecosystems on Earth: they are critical for preserving global biodiversity, provide safe drinking water, minimise flood risk and help address climate change. Peatlands are the largest natural terrestrial carbon store; the area covered by near natural peatland worldwide (>3 million km 2) sequesters gigatonnes of.

Hans Joosten () studied biology and worked as university researcher and policy officer (State Forestry Service, Ministry of Agriculture) in the Netherlands. Since he leads the Department of Peatland Studies and Palaeoecology of Greifswald University (Germany), partner in the Greifswald Mire Centre.

Key research topic of his group is paludiculture, on which he edited [ ]. Jane M. Doolan, Jody Swirepik, in Water for the Environment, Active Environmental Water Management in a Local Integrated Waterway Management Context.

A key principle in planning and managing environmental water is that it needs to occur within a broader context of integrated waterway management (IWM) aimed at delivering a set of agreed river/ wetland management.

This book was produced with three main aims: to bring together and review as much as possible of the present knowledge of peatland management, and to derive a series of recommended management techniques; to stimulate improved peatland management; and to encourage the exchange of ideas and experience between peatland managers.

The book is divided into different management. Emission factors for CO 2, CH 4 and N 2 O, and the resulting net GHG balance (based on year global warming potentials of 25 for CH 4 and for N 2 O) were derived for an illustrative set of peatland type/land-use combinations from the IPCC Wetland Supplement (), taking data for temperate peatland ve values indicate a net emission, and .The IPCC peatland education pack (IPCC, ) was split into six modules spanning science, history, geography, art, craft and design, English and .
