Background:

We have received much positive feedback to the latest draft of the Strategy for Responsible Peatland Management (4 May 2010). Most peatland experts who commented were satisfied with the improvements made but it was also expressed that a fourth face-to-face meeting would be needed to further enhance the document.

We hereby invite all persons and organisations involved in the process so far to a special SRPM Open Forum in Amsterdam on 10 October 2010, from 9 to 16 hrs. Discussions will include the content of the Strategy but also plans for a regular review and revision mechanism, as well as communication measures and implementation of the Strategy.

Please see the www.peatsociety.org/index.php?id=235 for the recent development of the Strategy and the latest consultation drafts.
