Conference: Climate protection and peatland use: potential in Germany

Examples for projects and initiatives on paludiculture driven by intentions of nature- and of climate protection are manifold. The conference “Climate protection and peatland use: potential in Germany” wants to gather stakeholders and stimulate exchange.

Based on presentations of best practice examples from peatland rich federal states - the following topics will be discussed:

  • What are the experiences with paludiculture in Germany?
  • How do peatland rich federal states fund and stimulate paludiculture projects?
  • What are obstacles and potentials in the implementation of paludiculture?

A separate day of excursions offers possibilities to visit best practice examples of paludiculture implementation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. These will also be open to participants of the international conference „RRR2017 - Renewable resources from wet and rewetted peatlands“.
