The right information on time to restore tropical peatlands (??)

Abstract:
Megafires that burn degraded peatlands generate significant carbon emissions, and transboundary air pollution that adversely affects the health and livelihoods of millions of people. This project will develop new tools to help environmental managers collect and rapidly share critical information to plan and evaluate restoration interventions that seek to reverse the conditions underpinning these extensive fires and recover endangered fauna. Restoration ecologists and decision scientists from four universities are here partnered with Indonesia┬┐s Peatland Restoration Agency and the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation to develop new technology and cost-efficient evaluation techniques to accelerate restoration of priority drained peat-domes.
