General

Within the framework of the project, the most important dry-laid peatlands in Central Russia are identified and rewetted using various methods. In addition, Russian partners will be trained so that they can independently implement the method of ecological rewetting in the future. Possibilities of sustainable use of rewetted marshland ("Paludiculture") are being tested and piloted where possible. The project thus makes an important contribution to the reduced risk of fire, protection of the climate and restoration of a unique biodiversity.
