Peatland protection through climate certificates: Study funded by the Audi Environmental Foundation and LEADER* highlights opportunities for the Donaumoos

Peatlands are considered efficient long-term carbon reservoirs. By storing enormous amounts of carbon in layers of peat, they thus help reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. How the transition from drainage-based to a sustainable peat-preserving use of land can be achieved, is the subject of the feasibility study “CO2-regio”, funded by the Audi Environmental Foundation. The study examines how measures for rewetting in the Donaumoos could be reconciled with the needs of local farmers.
