Table 1 Global scenarios of peatland management.

From: Prompt rewetting of drained peatlands reduces climate warming despite methane emissions

ScenarioDescription
Drain_MoreThe area of drained peatland continues to increase from 2020 to 2100 at the same rate as between 1990 and 2017
No_ChangeThe area of drained peatland remains at the 2018 level
Rewet_All_NowAll drained peatlands are rewetted in the period 2020–2040
Rewet_Half_NowHalf of all drained peatlands are rewetted in the period 2020–2040
Rewet_All_LaterAll drained peatlands are rewetted in the period 2050–2070
