2022 Activities

Forest Carbon Measurement and Monitoring Research, Tools, and Methods Workshop
April 19 - 22, 2022: Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon, USA

The SilvaCarbon Program supported a series of universities to implement, together with selected Silvacarbon countries, emerging tools, and methods for measuring and monitoring forest carbon. These techniques and methods cover an array of critical issues in forest carbon monitoring, including detecting forest degradation – a key challenge for many countries – using remote sensing applications, ground monitoring applications, and a combination of data sources. This meeting aims to update SilvaCarbon's Latin American countries on the current research development including challenges and diversions during the pandemic. The meeting intended to foster learning and collaboration through presentations and focused discussions. It also aimed to identify priorities for potential future research and develop an action plan to improve the current methods and techniques deployed during the pandemic.

Forest Carbon Measurement and Monitoring Research, Tools and Methods Workshop
February 14 - 16, 2022: University of Maryland, USA

The SilvaCarbon Program supported a series of Universities to implement, together with selected SilvaCarbon countries, emerging tools, and methods for measuring and monitoring forest carbon. These techniques and methods cover an array of critical issues in forest carbon monitoring, including detecting forest degradation (a key challenge for many countries), using remote sensing applications, ground monitoring applications, and a combination of data sources. This meeting aims to update SilvaCarbon's primary partners (USAID, USFS, USAID, State Department, World Bank) on current research development, including challenges and diversions during the pandemic.
