An Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) has been carried out for the Northern Ireland Peatland Strategy.  An analysis of relevant evidence has been considered to help identify potential impacts resulting from the implementation of the strategy on the nine Section 75 Equality Groups. A number of potential mitigating measures have also been suggested.  We invite stakeholders to consider the information included within this EQIA and provide feedback.
