Abstract/Summary:
This collation of physical, environmental, social, economic and institutional information provides a comprehensive guidance for the development of a support framework or protocol for the sustainable management of peatlands, which is presented in Section 5 of the report. The protocol delivers an action plan or set of recommendations that should be used to draft a much-needed National Peatland Policy that should ensure that this natural heritage is not lost in the future, but that it is safeguarded and enhanced during a challenging period of economic transition.
