We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Peatland fire assessment: Reducing vulnerability, enhancing restoration success

The speaker shared the principle that peatlands are sufficiently wet and covered with primary vegetation or sustainable commodities depending on the ecosystem functions and land use types. Speaker also shared potential criteria derived from that principle i.e. fire occurrence, natural and climax species abundance, and the number of hotspots, size of burned areas and depth of burn peatland, and the number of pioneer and fire climax species as indicators derived from those criteria. Presented by Solichin Manuri, a Senior Advisor at Daemeter Consulting.
