Deforestation and geoportal expertise




Agroforestry Climate Degradation-Restoration Forest REDD+ Remote sensing





Main goals

The company wants to assess deforestation in its supply area and monitor it in order to move towards a zero deforestation value chain

Specific objectives

SO1. Estimate past deforestation and the risk that affiliated producers have practiced deforestation in recent years (including a field mission to analyze the dynamics)
SO2. Production of a map of historical deforestation that can be used by the teams
SO3. Set up a monitoring tool (online geoportal fed by annual monitoring of deforestation and the evolution of risk) to ensure that there are no new deforested plots in supply areas
SO4. Transfer of skills and mastery of the tool by training a person within the company
