Monitoring the forests to restore ecosystems
The vision of the UN Decade Task Force on Monitoring is that a science-based restoration movement should be informed by the best available technology and data for planning and monitoring restoration actions on the ground. And, that the latest innovations should be broadly accessible to restoration stakeholders – this can help turn commitments into actions and can help scale investments in restoration.
This session will highlight progress and technical innovations from the Task Force for Monitoring working in support to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. The Framework for Ecosystem Restoration Monitoring (FERM) registry will be launched at this session and will also feature updates to the FERM geospatial platform and progress on the Indicator database for monitoring restoration progress through the UN Decade. The panellists will feature examples of successful initiatives and country experiences in restoration monitoring.
