Assignment to the Swedish Forestry Agency to start re-wetting drained peatlands

The Swedish government has on 20 May 2021 decided on an assignment to the Swedish Forestry Agency to start re-wetting drained peatlands to reduce the amount of climate gases. This decision is based on the government inquiry “Vägen till en klimatpositiv framtid” (SOU2020:4). Findings from BECC-researchers, among others Åsa Kasimir, Katarina Hedlund, Jessica Coria, Mark Brady, Johanna Alkan Olsson and Henrik Smith, constitute parts of the scientific foundations. We are happy to see such a positive impact on environmental policy development!
