The German Federal Foundation for the Environment and the Greifswald Mire Centre jointly held a conference on 1st June 2023 to discuss Accelerating peatland climate protection - How to bring peatland rewetting to grand scale. In order to achieve the German climate protection goals by 2045, peatland protection must accelerated.
The Action Programme for Natural Climate Protection and the National Peatland Protection Strategy offered the opportunity to remove obstacles to peatland protection projects and to accelerate planning and approval at both federal and state level. How this could look in concrete terms was demonstrated and discussed during the conference at the DBU Centre for Environmental Communication in Osnabrück, including research results from the Greifswald Mire Centre and experiences from various peatland and climate protection projects in the peatland-rich federal states.
