Optimal Peatland Restoration

Project Summary:

Using research to support multi-million pound investments in peatland restoration by:

  1. Producing a user-friendly digital model (DigiBog_Hydro) to inform where and what peatland restoration activities can do to optimise ecosystem service delivery, and how this delivery may change with climate change.
  2. Creating a menu of methods to help practitioners to calculate a value for the benefits of peatland restoration.
