Criteria and indicators for peatland restoration

This session shared potential pitfalls in developing criteria and indicators for peatland monitoring such as, (1) over-reliance on single indicators, (2) reporting indicators without contextual data, (3) using indicators that nobody can measure, and (4) monitoring without benefits for the local community. Presented by Mark Reed, Professor in Rural Entrepreneurship, Rural Economy, Environment, and Society, Rural Development and Food Marketing from Scotland’s Rural College.
