Capacity Building for REDD+ NFMS
The project has two main capacity building and development components:
The project largely relies on the free distribution satellite-data policy that INPE, NASA and ESA have adopted for their earth observation satellite sensors CBERS, Landsat and the new Sentinel programmes.
This knowledge transfer and training programme will be focused on technologies developed and applied by INPE, FAO and the other project partners (FUNCATE and the University of Idaho) in the field of forest monitoring. The core elements will be:
These applications will be integrated with other tools which countries may use to tailor their national forest monitor systems to their national circumstances.
