International Conference on Climate Smart Agriculture on Organic Soils, 23-24 November 2017, Uppsala, Sweden

Peatlands store a major share of the world’s soil organic carbon. Many European peatlands have been drained and cultivated in the past centuries. This fosters land surface subsidence and peat mineralization. Therefore, drained organic soils are a large source of greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions and, at the same time, at a high risk of being degraded and lost. At this conference, we want to discuss options for maintaining production on organic soils while reducing GHG emissions and buffering climate change.
