Final Report - CARBOPEAT (Carbon-climate-human interactions in tropical peatlands vulnerabilities, risks and mitigation measures)

Project ID: 43743
Funded under: FP6-INCO


The CARBOPEAT project, funded by the European Commission's Sixth Framework Programme, aimed to enhance understanding and promote awareness regarding carbon, climate and human interactions in tropical peatlands, so as to identify the vulnerabilities and risks of the carbon pools and to propose mitigation measures to reduce gas emissions based on the use of renewable natural resources.

This final activity report summarises the project objectives and analyses the undertaken activities to meet CARBOPEAT goals. The principal achievements of all working groups are also presented. Finally, the document provides detailed information on the numerous publishable results and reproduces a major statement, prepared by stakeholders, on the importance of tropical peatlands in environmental interactions.
