Peatlands, Forests and the Climate Architecture: Setting Incentives through Markets and Enhanced Accounting


The study explores policy options to map and integrate greenhouse gas (GHG) sensitive interventions in peatlands and forests in the emerging climate change architecture both under the UNFCCC and at the EU level. The underlying purpose is to present incentives for tapping into the vast emission reduction potential presented by peatlands and forests, and to feed the results into the on-going climate negotiations of the 2015 agreement.
