Forest Data and Transparency 'Zoom in' on the Experience of the Democratic Republic of the Congo
In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as in many other African countries, the reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation is a major national strategic priority. Previously, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has had limited technical capacity to produce and utilize data necessary for monitoring forest cover and changes. Since then, the country has established a national forest monitoring system (NFMS) to promote sustainable forest management practices and to take informed policy decisions on reducing forest loss. FAO webinar “Forest Data and Transparency: ‘Zoom in’ on the Experience of the Democratic Republic of the Congo” highlighted the country’s experience in establishing NFMS, and explored the various ways it has been upscaled and widely used, as a basis for satellite land monitoring systems, in other countries in the region and globally. The objectives of this webinar: 1) Give a general overview of the ongoing work being done in the African region on forest monitoring and climate action; 2) Present the “Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency – Forest” (CBIT-Forest) project and its support to the Paris Agreement goals; and 3) Present the work being done in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in relation to transparency in the forest sector.
