• to obtain accurate information of the degraded peatland areas and their ecosystems;
  • to prioritise the areas according to the potential climate change mitigation effect;
  • to prioritise the ecosystems and their services and identification of key problem issues, particularly in relation to synergies and trade-offs between ecosystem services, between ecosystem services and other ecosystem functions, and between ecosystem services and land uses;
  • to develop maps which can be used as a communication tool to initiate discussions with stakeholders and for planning purposes;
  • to develop illustrative scenarios to show that multiple pressures and impacts may affect a particular biodiversity descriptor (considering from quantitative and qualitative aspects).
