Contract award: Satellite Monitoring for Forest Management (SMFM)

LTS has been awarded the contract for Satellite Monitoring for Forest Management by the World Bank. The SMFM project will aim to improve global knowledge and capabilities for forest degradation assessment and monitoring dry forest landscapes by building upon and complimenting existing international programs. Second, the SMFM project will support selected countries to develop their Earth Observation (EO) capacity. It will develop and test new or improved methods to process and analyse new satellite EO datasets, with assessments of EO processing methods completed through practical implementation in selected Partner Countries.

The Project Development Objective (PDO) is “Improved methods for satellite monitoring of tropical dry forest landscapes and forest degradation assessment are available to countries, with technical knowledge and capacity developed for global application in sustainable forest management, including REDD+.”
