2023 Information Exchange

The Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI) Information Exchange of 2023 had record participation and engagement from across the GFOI community and beyond. The event took place in three virtual sessions on major forest regions: Asia-Pacific, Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC).

The webinars served as updates on forest monitoring and greenhouse gas estimations during 2023. The esteemed panellists included experts and representatives from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Norway's International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI), SERVIRSilvaCarbon and the World Bank, as well as the governments of Colombia, Germany and the Lao People's Democratic Republic.
