  2. 2. Peatlands• Peatlands are major carbon stores.• However, when drained peatlands become significant sources of GHG emissions.• Emissions from peatlands: – almost 6% of global anthropogenic carbon emissions – almost 25% of carbon emissions from the land use sector
  3. 3. REDD+Peat carbon pool mandatory under REDD+– Inclusion of soil carbon in reference level. • Methodological guidance by 2013.– Incentive for peat swamp forest rehabilitation– Multilateral and bilateral funding limited: • for capacity building and technical assistance. • Necessary long term finance still under negotiation.
  4. 4. LULUCFPeatland rewetting: new accounting activity under KP – Voluntary accounting in developed countries – Mandatory accounting for Forest Management - drainage of peatlands for forestry and rewetting of formerly drained forested peatlands must now be accounted for under KP
  5. 5. NAMAsPaludiculture or climate smart agriculture– Low hanging fruit– Combine wise use, conservation and restoration • open to all peatlands – also non-forest peatlands– COP17 reiterated invitation for developing countries to submit NAMA proposals for international finance
