The Forest Data Partnership is developing a consistent geospatial data ecosystem that will enable companies, governments, NGOs, researchers and civil society to access open source, validated data that can be used for the monitoring, verification and disclosure of progress in reducing deforestation and advancing restoration.

Join this webinar to learn about how the Forest Data Partnership’s approach will build alignment of stakeholders to reach consensus around key datasets in the ever-expanding landscape of forest monitoring data. Presentations by the speakers will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
