Project details


Our main goal is to bring together peatland experts across Canada to reduce uncertainty in greenhouse gas emission reductions from peatland management actions and evaluate policy instruments to support their implementation. Part of the work towards this goal includes creating a Canadian peatland metadata repository to function as a searchable web-based tool that allows users to find data that pertains to their needs by providing detailed information for each dataset and where to find it.

Under this main goal, Can-Peat has multiple sub-projects to answer specific peatland research questions through new data collection or evaluation of historical data.
