GPI Research Working Group training session: Learning from experience doing peatland research in developing countries
Learn from three researchers who have spent their careers working in developing countries. They will discuss challenges accessing sites, navigating cultural sensitivities and dealing with conflict. The session includes a case study of research on GHG emissions and land subsidence and flooding associated with plantation on tropical peatland, that led to negative reactions and other unforeseen negative consequences.
Speakers: Professor Sue Page (University of Leicester), Dr Ritesh Kumar (Wetlands International South Asia), Dr Rupesh Bhomia (CIFOR)
