COP26: Resilience & management of permafrost wetlands

04 Nov 2021

COP26 - Cryosphere Pavilion

16:00-17:00 GMT

Wetlands and peatlands cover large areas in the Arctic permafrost region, and are globally important as long-term carbon sinks, as wildlife habitats and as migration pathways. At broad scales, human emission reductions is the only way to prevent widespread permafrost thaw, but at the landscape scale, effective management of wetlands can contribute significantly to climate adaptation and mitigation and conservation of biodiversity. In May 2021, The Resilience & Management of Arctic Wetlands project delivered a suite of Key Findings and Policy Recommendations to the Foreign Ministers of the Arctic States. This session presents and discusses these findings, including Indigenous perspectives.

Organized by the Arctic Council Working Group the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF).
