Forest Talks webinar series – Towards a common European forest monitoring system

Latest events
Event start date

Despite the fact that Europe is a data-rich region, a future forest monitoring system will integrate and complement existing national systems. The aim of this webinar is to discuss how results from Horizon Europe research projects can contribute to the development of a future forest monitoring system and how to use its information for co-designing forest-based policy pathways to achieve climate and biodiversity goals. ForestPaths, one of the organisers, is the participating EFI project.

A common European forest monitoring system is crucial as it:

  • Promotes climate -and biodiversity- smart forest management by providing vital data for policymaking,
  • Helps evaluate and maximise forests’ role in climate change mitigation, aids in biodiversity conservation,
  • Safeguards economic interests by monitoring forest resources, and
  • Assists in disaster prevention through early threat detection and identifying adaptation needs.
