GLF Peatlands 2024: The Climate Solution We Forgot

Hidden habitats that define the future of climate, biodiversity and life

As the world’s largest knowledge-led platform on sustainable landscapes, the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) is uniquely positioned to unite global and regional stakeholders. Following the success of the 2017 GLF Peatlands conference, this upcoming event will create space to address gaps in the science, policy and practice nexus and bring forth traditional knowledge in peatland management. It will foster dialogue around effective, appropriate and participatory management models as well as the necessary policy and financial tools needed to support them at the national, regional and global level.

Against the backdrop of growing political momentum for peatland protection, exemplified by Germany’s commitment to a national peatland strategy, GLF Peatlands 2024 will align with global efforts to safeguard these critical ecosystems. Held alongside the UNFCCC Bonn Climate Change Conference, it seeks to enhance the dialogue on the vital role of preserved peatlands in carbon cycling, including their substantial carbon sequestration capacity when undisturbed and the critical impacts on greenhouse gas fluxes arising from degraded peatlands.
