A Socio-Economic Model for Peatland Restoration on Private and Municipal Lands

A socio-economic model for increasing the efficiency of measures taken for peatland restoration in the Chernihiv region was presented within a project Demonstration Model for Peatland Restoration on 3,000 ha of “Smolianka” drainage system, Polissia, north of Ukraine. The model targets local communities and land owners and gives practical tools for solving potential conflicts between the locals and GHG emission reduction and ecosystem restoration projects.
