This film produced by Manfred van Eijk, Viverrafilms, deals with the environmental and social issues related to the large-scale drainage of peatlands in Central Russia, such as forest-peat fires affecting climate, biodiversity and public health. The Project on ‘Restoring Peatlands in Russia – for fire prevention and climate change mitigation’ financed under the International Climate Initiative demonstrates that ecological restoration of drained and abandoned peatlands provides a satisfactory solution to these problems.
