dc.description.abstractScotland is a global pioneer of peatland restoration which is widely seen as having a significant role in addressing the global climate emergency. Peatlands cover nearly a quarter of Scotland and contain over half of the total Scottish soil carbon. However, a high proportion of Scottish peatlands has been altered to such an extent that it is now degraded, causing substantial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Consequently, the Scottish Government has established ambitious peatland restoration targets. While there is evident potential for peatland restoration to provide climate and wider ecosystem benefits, much less is known about the broader perceptions of peatlands, and the values attached to their restoration. This report examines current experiences of peatland restoration, as well as the anticipated outcomes and factors influencing engagement with restoration. It also considers the opportunities and challenges for upscaling restoration efforts going forward.en
