Peatland restoration; application for funding

The Free State of Bavaria promotes the renaturation of peatlands.

Description

Peatlands are important carbon dioxide reservoirs. The purpose of the funding is the conservation, optimization and restoration of peatlands.

An essential goal of peatland restoration is the restoration of the function of peatlands asCO2 reservoirs. At the same time, the habitats of rare animal and plant species are sustainably secured and protected.

Funding is provided for the purchase of land, the development of renaturation concepts and the implementation of projects for the rewetting of peatlands.

Municipalities, special-purpose associations, nature parks, landscape conservation associations, nature conservation associations and private owners are eligible to apply.

Prerequisites
