Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

Congo Basin forests represent 22 % of the world’s forests. Sustainable management of this huge carbon pool is therefore essential in the fight against climate change and for preserving biodiversity. Satellite images facilitate the monitoring of forest cover, as well as the development and implementation of sustainable land use policies.

During this round table, representatives of national authorities and holders of ambitious projects will demonstrate the benefits of the use of satellite images as a tool for sustainable forests management.

Satellite Images for Sustainable Forest Management,
on Friday 11 décembre at 5:15 p.m.

This round table will take place at the "Climate generations areas" that will be open to the general public (room 2).
