Protecting Peatlands, the Newly Recognized Treasure of the Philippines
While peatlands cover only 3% of the Earth’s land surface, studies show that they can store twice as much carbon as all of the forests on the planet combined, if they are kept in their natural state. The ASEAN region is home to about 27.4 million hectares of peatlands with 2 located in Leyte and in Agusan del Sur of the Philippines.
Learn more about the benefits Philippine Peatlands provide, their present condition, the challenges in their management, and the country’s National Action Plan.
