Film on the satellite imagery to help sustainable management of tropical forests

Printer-friendly versionSend to friend

Early June 2015, AFD and FFEM broadcast a film titled Beyond the maps, illustrating the contribution of satellite images to sustainable management of African forests.

Satellite imagery, an effective tool to monitor changes in forests, is difficult to access in Central and Western Africa. The OSFT and Geoforafri projects are two projects financed by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and AFD which provide satellite data and build the capacities for analysis and action of actors in the field in Africa.

The consortium in charge of project management for the provision of SPOT satellite data for the Congo Basin in the context of the REDD+ initiative is led by IGN France International and also includes the French Geographical Institute (IGN), the National Centre for Spatial Studies (CNES) and the Institute for Research for Development (IRD). ONF International is also associated with this operation. The implementation was entrusted to ASTRIUM.
