Smoke on Water: Countering Global Threats from Peatland Loss and Degradation - A Rapid Response Assessment. Revised Edition
United Nations Environment Programme, GRID-Arendal

More than 180 countries have peatlands but we are only just starting to understand their role in both climate change and our efforts to curb it.
