Care-Peat: Restoring the carbon storage capacity of peatlands
Care-Peat is working to reduce carbon emissions and restore the carbon storage capacity of different types of peatlands in North-West Europe. The main goal of Care-Peat is to set up and demonstrate how by using innovative technologies for new restoration and carbon measurement techniques and the involvement of local and regional stakeholders help on carbon footprint reduction.
Care-Peat is an Interreg project with nine partners working together to reduce carbon emissions and restore the carbon storage capacity of different types of peatlands in North-West Europe.
The main partnership consists of five knowledge institutes and four nature organisations from Belgium, France, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Together with our other project partners, we develop and test new techniques and socio-economic strategies for carbon reduction.
