Horizon Europe Wetlands Restoration Project - Holistic approach for wetland restoration

A holistic approach

WET HORIZONS brings together people from different backgrounds (including wet and peatland experts, biomodelers, and policy analysts) with the goal of restoring Europe‘s wetlands.

Horizon Europe Wetlands Restoration Project - Collecting data for wetland restoration

Collecting data

WET HORIZONS aims to fill in crucial knowledge gaps about wetlands. The data collection will also include a citizen science component.

Horizon Europe Wetlands Restoration Project - Fast-tracking European wetland restoration

Tools for large scale restoration

How long does it take for rewetted peatlands to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? Is it an immediate... and constant process?

A recent study by @GFZ_Potsdam, led by @AramKalhori looks at long-term #research to reveal the nuances of this process.


Kalhori and her research team studied the 17 years of data from a rewetted peatland in Germany. Their results showed ...fluctuations in emissions over this time but an overall decrease in carbon dioxide and methane emissions.
