A task as complex as the transition to sustainable management in Brandenburg’s peatlands requires broad professional knowledge and know-how. That is why eight partners have joined forces in the Arge Klimamoor. Jänschwalde-based Nagola Re GmbH and team ferox GmbH from Dresden are responsible for the overall coordination of the project designated the “Climate protection and climate impact adaptation through peatland-friendly reservoirs and water management relating to peatland areas in the state of Brandenburg and its catchment areas” in the state of Brandenburg. Nagola Re’s work is focusing on vegetation and fauna surveys, nature conservation planning and monitoring of the climate marsh sites, as well as mediation and communication with owners and users, while team ferox not only deals with nature conservation issues but also accompanies the process management for the implementation of the individual projects.

In the Arge Klimamoor network, six other specialist offices take on tasks of analysis, planning, application, monitoring and consulting, each based on their specialist competences. Dr. Dittrich & Partner Hydro Consult GmbH based in Dresden and IHU-Geologie und Analytik Gesellschaft für Ingenieur-, Hydro- und Umweltgeologie mbH based in Güstrow are dealing with the issues of project preparation, such as terrain modelling to simulate water level, losses of peatland height and greenhouse gas savings, as well as the subsequent monitoring.

The Potsdam engineering office Wasser-Boden-Landschaft and the office “Wasser & Moor”- Planning for Aquatic Habitats with Stephan Reimann, Dipl. Environmental Scientist / MSc., are overseeing the area of technical object planning as well as the application process for water rights. Sebastian Petri, Peatland Climate Manager MSc Agriculture, who himself manages 250 hectares in the Rhinluch, is entrusted with advising and instructing the users of climate peatlands on ecologically sound peatland management. The ATB Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy in Potsdam is developing technologies and processes for the utilisation of growth from wetland sites.

The Institute for the Sustainable Development of Natural Areas (Institut für Dauerhaft Umweltgerechte Entwicklung von Naturräumen) of the Earth (DUENE) e.V. as a partner in the Greifswald Moor Centrum (GMC) supports the ARGE Klimamoor with the assessment of the climate impact in the project areas, both for the current and the planned future condition of the project area. In addition, it provides advice and support regarding the prediction of the loss of peatland height.

The Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) e.V. is responsible for the scientific monitoring of the low-lying peatland rewetting measures with the associated water, soil and plant studies and measures for the establishment of replacement pastureland in various study areas in Brandenburg.
