IUCN UK Peatland Programme – UK Peatland Strategy consultation

The IUCN UK Peatland Programme has produced a draft UK wide Strategy document which it has been seeking feedback on.   

The document - here... is not a government endorsed strategy but nevertheless if it is balanced and properly reflects the latest science and research, it has the potential to support resources and capacity to restore and maintain peatlands across the UK.   Scottish Land & Estates has suggested a number of modifications to the document which challenge some of the current rhetoric in relation to controlled burning on peatland and which reflect a more accurate picture in terms of past Government policy in relation to “improving” moorland for agriculture and forestry purposes.

Consultation Document: A Secure Peatland Future A vision and strategy for the protection, restoration and sustainable management of UK peatlands.
