The aim of “Carbon Connects” is to enhance carbon sequestration of mismanaged peatlands in North-West Europe by promoting new sustainable business models and facilitating the transformation in land use towards wet agriculture. In this way we aim to reduce the CO2 emissions in agricultural peatlands where traditional land use practices have unnecessary high emissions.
We promote alternative practices, sustainable business models and credit schemes for wet agriculture involving:• Raising water levels• Introducing new crops (e.g. cattail, reed, peat moss)• Sequestrating carbon in soil and harvested biomass (e.g. to be used as building material).
