The "Reaching GHG Emissions Targets" measure of the Green Transition part of the National Resilience and Recovery Plan aims to reduce GHG emissions from former drained degraded peatlands, restore wetland processes in these areas, create favourable conditions for biodiversity habitats, and increase GHG uptake. 

Lithuania will invest 832.1 million EUR with EU funds to implement its Green Transition, with an additional 169.2 million EUR from alternative EU finance instruments, 257.44 million EUR from private legal entities and 45.26 million EUR from its national budget.
