Conservation Handbook |The IUCN UK Peatland Programme exists to promote peatland restoration in the UK and advocates the multiple benefits of peatlands through partnerships, strong science, sound policy and effective practice. The Irish Peatland Conservation Council (IPCC) published our new action plan entitled Ireland’s Peatland Conservation Action Plan – halting the loss of peatland biodiversity during The aim of this plan is to develop a national strategy for the conservation and management of all peatland types in Ireland.

IPCC Policy and Case Work is a vital part of our work to achieve our mission of conserving a representative sample of the peatlands of Ireland for people to enjoy now and in the future.

We have a Peatland Conservation Action Plan in place which sets out our policies to achieve this IPCC peatland conservation and management handbook book. On a day to day basis in the office IPCC respond to invitations and public. IPCC’s mission and work is to conserve a representative sample of Irish peatlands for future generations to enjoy.

Our Work Involves: purchasing and protecting peatland nature reserves for wildlife and habitat conservation; maintaining a database of peatland sites of conservation importance in Ireland.

organic matter than peatland soils and also comprises organic soils of sedimentary origin, such as lake sediments (IUSS Working Group WRB, ).

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) considers “organic soil” to be soil with at least 12 to 18 percent of organic carbon, depending on the clay content (IPCC ).

- Meet the IUCN UK Peatland Programme challenge: 1 million hectares of peatland in good condition, under restoration agreements and being sustainably managed. Establish the current baseline and begin to define management plans. - 50% of the peatland resource is conserved in good condition.

- Target (95%) is achieved. IPCC peatland conservation and management handbook book Examples of this fruitful cooperation are the book on “Wise Use of Mires and Peatlands” () and the joint journal “Mires and Peat” (). Many IMCG members participated also in the consultation process for the Strategy for Responsible Peatland Management.

Customer Reviews. A Review was produced for the Commission of Inquiry and examines current and future policy measures affecting the sustainable management of peatlands.

The Review looks at existing conservation and landscape designations, national strategies, planning and other legal frameworks, codes of practice and provide an assessment of exemplars of good practice.

Our Vision Our long term vision is that peatlands in the UK function to their full potential and that there is no further loss of peatland ecosystems, providing cost effective solutions for climate change, water and biodiversity. Investment in peatland restoration is needed now, securing the benefits they provide and avoiding the costly consequences of their deterioration.

Launching the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) established an interface between the scientific community and policy makers comparable to the IPCC.

It reflects as much the hope as the political challenge connected to the ecosystem service approach bridging nature conservation and human well-being. Peatlands are a type of wetlands which are among the most valuable ecosystems on Earth: they are critical for preserving global biodiversity, provide safe drinking water, minimise flood risk and help address climate change.

Peatlands are the largest natural terrestrial carbon store; the area covered by near natural peatland worldwide (>3 million km 2) sequesters gigatonnes of. Hans Joosten () studied biology and worked as university researcher and policy officer (State Forestry Service, Ministry of Agriculture) in the Netherlands.

Key research topic of his group is paludiculture, on which he edited [ ]. Jane M. Doolan, Jody Swirepik, in Water for the Environment, Active Environmental Water Management in a Local Integrated Waterway Management Context.

A key principle in planning and managing environmental water is that it needs to occur within a broader context of integrated waterway management (IWM) aimed at delivering a set of agreed river/ wetland management. This book was produced with three main aims: to bring together and review as much as possible of the present knowledge of peatland management, and to derive a series of recommended management techniques; to stimulate improved peatland management; and to encourage the exchange of ideas and experience between peatland managers.

The book is divided into different management. Emission factors for CO 2, CH 4 and N 2 O, and the resulting net GHG balance (based on year global warming potentials of 25 for CH 4 and for N 2 O) were derived for an illustrative set of peatland type/land-use combinations from the IPCC Wetland Supplement (), taking data for temperate peatland ve values indicate a net emission, and.

The IPCC peatland education pack (IPCC, ) was split into six modules spanning science, history, geography, art, craft and design, English and.

Peat (/ p iː t /), sometimes known as turf (/ t ɜːr f /), is an accumulation of partially decayed vegetation or organic is unique to natural areas called peatlands, bogs, mires, moors, or muskegs. The peatland ecosystem covers million square kilometres and is the most efficient carbon sink on the planet, because peatland plants capture CO 2 naturally released from the.

The database contains analogue and GIS maps, reports, observations, pictures, and is supported by the Peatland and Nature Conservation International Library PeNCIL.

General values for peatland emissions under different land uses have been agreed by the International Panel on Climate Change enabling countries to include emissions from damaged peatlands and savings from restored areas within national greenhouse gas accounting (IPCC.

1. Introduction Land use and climate change. Climate change is an increasing priority for the land sector, with innovative policies required to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and manage unavoidable climate risks (IPCC, a).Within this agenda, afforestation has been recognised as a key intervention, usually to redress substantial losses from historic.

Based on the ‘European Mires Book’ of the International Mire Conservation Group (IMCG), this article provides a composite map of national datasets as the first comprehensive peatland.

the problems, solutions and opportunities associated with peatland management. This report is a handbook for policy-makers, technical audiences and others interested in peatlands.

10 elements of strategic action: 1. Identify occurrence and status (pristine, drained, abandoned, under productive use) of all peatlands worldwide.

This policy brief provides an analysis of both the REDD section in the LCA text (d.d. 22 June) and add.2 & 3 of the KP text (d.d.1 [ ]. This includes organising and performing summer schools on soil and peatland carbon dynamics and co-editing of a book on methodologies in carbon dynamics (Kutsch, Bahn & Heinemeyer, ).

We have also started critically assessing the evidence around management impacts on peatland functioning (Ashby & Heinemeyer, a), especially C storage. Following an invitation from the UNFCCC to “undertake further methodological work on wetlands, focusing on the rewetting and restoration of peatland, with a view to filling in the gaps in the IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories” (FCCC/SBSTA//13, paragraph 72), an IPCC Expert Meeting on Scoping Additional.

That’s a major theme of the newly released Special Report on Climate Change and Land, produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This latest assessment confirms that food security and land-based sectors face mounting risks if business continues as usual, and calls for greater emphasis on land-management decisions in the.

Written for a global audience of environmental scientists, practitioners and policy makers, as well as graduate students from natural and social sciences, this interdisciplinary book provides vital pointers towards managing peatland conservation in a changing environment.

Cropland, managed grassland and other pasture make up 56% of the peat association and on average 76% in the other, predominately humic 2 shows their relative importance: Other pasture is the dominant type of agriculture for the histic soils (72%) while for humic soils managed grassland is the main land use (85%).Cropland plays.
