The Global Forest Observations Initiative (GFOI), along with its partner the European Space Agency (ESA), invites you to attend a side-event at the UNFCCC’s COP22 in Marrakech.

Through collaborative action, the GFOI seeks to assist emerging countries in the development of national forest monitoring systems and associated emissions measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) requirements for REDD+.

The side-event will showcase GFOI activities and the value of collaboration in this fast growing and vitally important field in the battle against climate change.

Through the work of its partners, GFOI focusses on four key components; Capacity Building jointly led by US SilvaCarbon and UNREDD-FAO, Methods and Guidance Documentation led by Australia, R&D Coordination by GOFC-GOLD and Space Data Coordination by CEOS.
