This decision support tree was developed for the 2012 report, Peatlands – guidance for climate change mitigation by conservation, rehabilitation and sustainable use, which outlines the steps in the decision-making process.
The main strategies for reducing emissions from peatlands and organic soils aim to:
1. secure undrained peatlands to prevent emissions;
2. rewet drained peatlands to reduce emissions; and
3. adapt management strategies for peatlands that cannot be rewetted.
