Development of methods to derive climate protection potentials and creation of a network among actors for the implementation of climate protection measures
Background and objectives
Peatlands are especially important for biodiversity conservation, climate protection and water supply. As in other regions, those functions of Alpine peatlands are under strain due to increasing building activities, change and intensification of land use and climate change.
Hence, the overall objective of this project is to protect peatlands in the Alps. Thereby, we especially consider the climate protection potential of Alpine peatlands. This topic is very urgent, as in the light of climate neutrality goals, we should use all possibilities to develop a contribution of the biosphere to climate protection.
In the former projects "Alpenmoore" and "Impuls4Action" the existing data bases in the different countries were compiled and deficits for action were identified:
The project focuses on the following four modules:
