Biodiversity sustaining carbon management in degraded lands and cut-away peatlands in Northern periphery and Arctic regions

What we do

Globally, carbon capture should be increased maintaining biodiversity at the same time. In the Northern periphery, there are degraded and neglected areas whose utilization could be developed towards efficient carbon capture. Sustainable exploitation of targeted project lands and fields in the Northern periphery, needs implementation models that benefit landowners and policy makes and biodiversity, too. BioDiver preparatory project´s aim is to build up operational model for the Northern periphery to re-utilize these areas for carbon capture and utilization (CCU) in a way that preserves biodiversity. The project will conclude with the main project application.
