Workshop Report – Developing a National Peatland Monitoring Framework

The Peatland Research and Monitoring Group are exploring how identify priorities for monitoring peatland condition in Scotland. ClimateXChange organised a workshop of experts to explore the concept of peatland condition (the ‘what’) and identify what datasets (the ‘how’) are needed.
We recognised that developing a monitoring strategy is a huge task and could not be achieved with one meeting. The aim of this event was to bring the professional perspectives of delegates together to agree a basis for action, highlighting the key priorities and identifying realistic and definable tasks that could be taken forward.
