Climate change: CO2 emissions rising for first time in four years

Peatlands are part of the solution as nations struggle to control their carbon emissions. Damaged peatlands around the world emit 6% of the annual carbon dioxide total. Sustainable management and restoration of peatlands is a cost effective natural way to reduce global carbon emissions that provides other benefits such as floor amelioration, increased water quality and quantity and the protection of biodiversity.
