Reach climate protection and biodiversity targets also with mire restoration:
Mire conservation and rewetting measures contribute to the achievement of national climate protection and biodiversity targets. On drained, agricultural and non-protected peatlands, it is necessary to reduce the emissions from trace gases affecting the climate. This can be done by means of adaptation and better control of a good professional practice of agricultural land use.
By reducing legal restrictions, paludiculture can be established as wet use of peatlands against conventional climate and environmental unfriendly land uses. The allocation of subsidies for the use of peatlands must be linked to climate, biodiversity, soil and water protection requirements.
In order to maintain biodiversity typical for mires, more funding is to be provided by the shift from the first to the second pillar of the common agricultural policy for maintaining ecological valuable sites. In order to protect and develop growing mires, it is necessary that they are surrounded with sufficiently wide hydrological protection zones and that these protection zones are included into the protected areas.zones and that these protection zones are included into the protected areas.
