ABSTRACT
The article reports on the United Nations Climate Change Conference held last December 2007 in Bali, Indonesia. One of the reports presented at the conference discussed the link between peatland degradation and climate change. The United States has the third largest area of peatlands of any country in the world after Russia and Canada. The Assessment on Peatlands, Biodiversity and Climate Change was prepared through a review of scientific information on the nature and value of peatlands. The synergy between the conventions and policy platforms calls for enhanced coordination and cooperation.
