The Global Peatlands Initiative is a time-bound, targeted effort by leading experts and institutions to protect peatlands, which are the most space-effective store of carbon on the planet. The Initiative was launched at the climate change conference COP22 in Marrakech in November 2017 with aim to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by protecting peatlands – the world’s largest terrestrial organic carbon stock.
The side event will focus on sharing examples, lessons and approaches from governments, institutions, stakeholders and partners.
