Wet and healthy peatlands have a strong natural potential to save carbon and, due to their water
buffering capacity, play an important role in managing periods of excessive rains or droughts. Yet, in
NWE regions large areas of peatlands are drained for peat mining, agriculture or forestry, which
makes them CO2 emission sources rather than sinks. By restoring the capacity to buffer carbon and
water, BUFFER+ partners aim at climate change adaptation and mitigation in NWE regions, while at
the same time restore biodiversity and create new revenue streams.
BUFFER+ involves 21 partners and 7 Associated Organisations from regions
