Rewetting wetlands/peatlands, paludiculture

Paludiculture is the productive land use of wet and rewetted peatlands that preserves the peat soil and thereby minimizes CO2 emissions and subsidence. Rewetting wetlands/peatlands, also known as paludiculture, is the practice of restoring and managing wetlands and peatlands in order to provide economic and ecological benefits. This involves rewetting peatlands that have been drained for agriculture, forestry, or other uses. By restoring the hydrological balance, the wetland can provide habitats for interesting plants and animals, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create additional sources of income from renewable energy, forestry, and cranberry production.
