Programme
Strategy
Passed in 2021
The strategy aims to protect bogs to open local economic prospects, store carbon and prevent flooding. It includes financial and non-financial incentives to promote rewetting as well as conservation efforts.

Drained peatlands used for agricultural purposes are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions in Germany. The programmes will take targeted measures to support the agricultural and forestry sectors and the affected regions. This will be done on the basis of a funding guideline issued by the Federal Government.
