Demonstration of climate change mitigation measures in nutrients rich drained organic soils in Baltic States

LIFE OrgBalt






The general aim of the Project is implementation of climate-change mitigation measures in management of nutrient-rich organic soils in cool temperate moist climate region to contribute to the EU and national climate targets in post-2020 commitment period by reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from cropland, grassland and forest land on organic soils.


Mitigation methods for organic soils under agriculture and forestry with demonstration sites, reduced emissions, improved greenhouse gas emission factors and inventory procedures for the Baltic region, greenhouse gas emission data base for the Baltic region, guidelines for climate-smart management of organic soils in the Nordic-Baltic region, management planning tools, policy planning tools, stakeholder workshops, scientific and popular publications.
