Latvia is the first of the Baltic States which has elaborated a comprehensive set of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission factors for degraded organic soils to be used in Latvia’s National GHG Inventory
The EU LIFE REstore project’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emission measurement results confirm – the default GHG emission factors that are used today in Latvia’s National GHG Inventory Report are two times higher than the real GHG emissions from nutrient-poor managed organic soils in Latvia.
The LIFE REstore carried out an inventory of degraded peatlands in Latvia
The LIFE REstore inventory of peatlands indicates that there are 18010 ha of degraded peatlands in Latvia which compiles 36% of all areas affected by peat extraction.
