Responsible management practices can help to maintain peatland ecosystem services while sustaining and improving local livelihoods. This publication gives guidance on responsible peatland management practices, supporting the reduction of GHG emissions from managed peatlands. It is an overview of current knowledge on peatlands and includes data related to their geographic distribution, ecological characteristics and socio-economic importance. The guide has been written to assist land managers and other decision makers. It documents case studies of responsible management practices: rewetting, paludiculture, degraded pasture restoration and forestry in all climatic regions.
