Family forest owners in the Southern US produce 60% of the region's wood fibre, but their rate of certification remains low. This project will make certification more accessible through an innovative landscape management plan.
Supporting CIRAD to generate new knowledge on the long-term impacts of timber extraction on both carbon stocks and timber recovery in the humid tropics.
With remote sensing an increasingly important tool within the forestry sector, we are supported the development of a web-based platform to monitor the sustainable management of forests in Finland using open-source satellite imagery.
