Less than 3% of the landmass in the Philippines is classified as peatlands. This includes the Agusan Marsh and Leyte Sab-a Basin, with many unverified peatlands dotted around the archipelago. With a size of around 3,000 hectares, Leyte Sab-a plays a significant role as a carbon sink in the country.
