A consortium of 23 organisations, led by the Greifswald Mire Centre, National University of Ireland Galway (Dr. Terry Morley and Niall O’Brolchain) and the Wetlands International European Association, call on the preservation of peatlands in the post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy. The position paper, part of an INTERREG NWE Project: Care Peat draws on the links between climate change, agriculture and peatland conservation. As agriculture is one of the main causes for peatland drainage, the paper focuses on the potential of the post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to reduce this degradation.[further info]
