Social innovation in focus:
Many peatlands have been drained to win land for agriculture. But drained peatlands are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. Paludiculture, or the productive use of wet and rewetted peatlands1, advances rewetting of peatlands in a social way: it makes farmers part of new solutions flowing from wet agriculture. The plants of wet landscapes provide inputs for regional value chains, as well as social and environmental values.
