Peatland, a Nature Based Solution to help restoring the water cycle and biodiversity.
BUFFER+ is an InterregNWE project, focussing on realization, on research build-up and sharing of knowledge for peatland restoration. By restoring the capacity to buffer carbon and water, provide ecosystems to improve biodiversity, the project aims at climate change adaptation and mitigation in NWE regions, while at the same time contributing to restore biodiversity and create new revenue streams.
Interreg BUFFER+ involves 21 partners and 7 associated organizations from 5 countries: Germany, Ireland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Together the partnership represents all types of peatlands in north-west Europe; from low peat bogs, boggy soils and peat meadows to wet grasslands and raised bogs. Knowledge organizations, site managers, companies, network organizations and governments combine their capabilities and expertise and build on the results of previous projects.
