Forest data and transparency: ‘Zoom’ in on Costa Rica’s experience”
Costa Rica has made many efforts to monitor and conserve its forests. Since 2015, the Government has been developing a national system for monitoring land cover, land use and ecosystems (SIMOCUTE: Sistema Nacional de Monitoreo de la Cobertura y Uso de la Tierra y Ecosistemas) that facilitates the collection, integration, management, and dissemination of national-scale environmental data and information. FAO has “zoomed” in on Costa Rica’s national system for monitoring land cover, land use and ecosystems SIMOCUTE, which has been highlighted in a recent FAO case study publication. The webinar featured presentations on the case study and SIMOCUTE, followed by a discussion and will conclude with the key messages of this work. The webinar and the case study were conducted in the framework of the project “Building global capacity to increase transparency in the forest sector (CBIT-Forest)” funded by the Capacity-Building Initiative for Transparency (CBIT) trust fund of the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
