LIFE Climate Jura peatlands (2022-2029)

Version française

The European programme LIFE Climate Jura peatlands

The general objective of the LIFE Climate Jura peatlands programme is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions resulting from the degradation of the peatlands in the Jura region of France.

The peatlands of this massif have undergone a large number of disturbances (drainage, peat extraction, etc.) which have ultimately led to a lowering of their water table. Instead of being sinks, these ecosystems have become sources of carbon, thus contributing to climate change.

To achieve this objective of reducing GHGs, a consortium of 5 organisations has been formed to carry out operations to restore functional hydrology on 70 degraded sites located in the Doubs and Jura departments (neutralisation of drainage ditches, revitalisation of former extraction pits, restoration of watercourses, etc.).
