Geo-Wiki campaign on Tropical Forest loss

What has been driving recent tropical forest loss? A new Geo-Wiki campaign tries to elucidate the answer

We are excited to announce that as part of the LOT 1 project IIASA has started a new crowdsourcing campaign to help us understand and map the drivers of forest loss across the Tropics. The Geo-Wiki campaign will contribute to a more accurate mapping of the drivers of forest loss in the tropics. This is crucial to guide policies that can protect tropical forests, not only the most biodiverse areas of our planet but also buffers to the ever-increasing effects of climate change.

A webinar presenting the draft low ILUC-risk certification approach to be used in the pilots was held on 19 November 2020. It was attended by 150+ stakeholders from whom comments and feedback were collected.

We continue to welcome stakeholder input and feedback throughout the project. For any comments, questions, or feedback, please contact us through this link.
