Wetlands International Annual Report 2013

The “red thread” for our work in 2013 was our increasing connection, dialogue and influence with other civil society organisations, business and industry. As you glance through the Achievements section in the report, you will see many concrete examples of this, with on-ground and policy results evident from the local to global scale. Through our major programmes we have demonstrated how wetlands play a vital role in securing biodiversity, strengthening livelihoods, increasing community resilience natural hazards like floods and droughts and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Biocombustibles en Argentina

Los biocombustibles surgen como respuesta al acelerado agotamiento de los recursos energéticos fósiles y como un producto cuya combustión reduce la emisión de gases de efecto invernadero respecto a los carburantes fósiles. Sin embargo, con el incremento del empleo de biocombustibles a partir de cultivos agrícolas, se ha originado un debate acerca de los impactos de estos productos sobre el medio ambiente.

Policy Brief on Indirect Land Use Change and Peatlands

In this policy brief to the EU parliament and ministers, Wetlands International offers recommendations to effectively address indirect land use change emissions (ILUC) from peatlands. We also provide factual information on peatlands and greenhouse gas emissions and emphasise the following key points:

  • Biofuels production on peatlands increases greenhouse gas emissions
  • Indirect land use change (ILUC) emissions from peatlands are significant
  • Drainage of peatlands is unsustainable
  • EU rules on biofuels and proposals on ILUC are inadequate
