The forty-sixth sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI 46) and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA 46), as well as the third part of the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement (APA 1-3), took place from 8 to 18 May 2017, in Bonn, Germany.
The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) joined various sessions at the Bonn Climate Change Conference, bringing the latest scientific research and insights on the climate dimensions of land use, forestry, the urban environment, peatlands and other emissions hotspots in the tropics.

New research: More peat in the tropics than previously thought, with implications for climate action
Global momentum building on peatlands research for climate change
Official side event
Re-discovering the magnificent carbon storage potential of wetlands and peatlands
Thursday, 11 May
The immense carbon storage potential of tropical wetlands and peatlands is still largely unappreciated. The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the European Space Agency (ESA), Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU Jena) and Wageningen University & Research (WUR) held an official side event on this topic at the UNFCCC Bonn Climate Change Conference. Participants learned about the latest tools for identifying and locating wetlands and peatlands, for application in policy-making on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

This research is part of CIFOR's Global Comparative Study on REDD+ and the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) with support from the CGIAR Fund Donors.
