Open Foris Free open-source solutions for environmental monitoring

Free open-source solutions for environmental monitoring

Open Foris is a set of free and open-source software platforms that helps countries measure, monitor and report on forestry progress, take science-based actions, and accelerate forest pathways:

  • measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) for environmental integrity;
  • deforestation-free supply chains; and
  • restoration monitoring.

Part of FAO's open-source digital public goods, it serves as a transformative accelerator, ensuring innovative, accurate, and transparent forest monitoring accessible to everyone, everywhere, enhancing effectiveness and impact, while meeting the urgent need for systems that enable accurate, yet cost-effective monitoring, reporting and verification of forest and other land cover.
