Description

The restoration of forests and other key ecosystems is a major pathway to address the concurrent climate and biodiversity crises and also towards meeting a wide range of global development goals and national priorities, but the stakes are high and financial resources are limited.

To help identify and prioritize promising, cost-effective restoration locations, FAO, in collaboration with the Spatial Informatics Group, SilvaCarbon, NASA SERVIR and researchers at Peking University and Duke University, have developed an application in SEPAL (https://sepal.io/) that combines ecological data on forest restoration with socio-economic data on its benefits, costs and risks.

The tool is intended to support the preparation of strategic restoration plans for a given region by providing improved, spatially explicit information on restoration suitability and impacts, which are most relevant to user’s restoration objectives.

As a follow up to the soft launch of this SEPAL forest restoration planning tool on 3 June during the GLF Africa, this webinar provides a further opportunity for restoration stakeholders to get an in-depth look at the tool’s functionalities and also to share any feedback and needs for future application of the tool in different context and landscapes.

AGENDA:
• Introduction
• Overview of the tool: approach and available data layers
• Demonstration of the tool: user interface, result map and dashboard
• Moderated discussion with all participants

SPEAKERS
• Julian Fox (FAO)
• Jeff Vincent (Duke University)
• Yuanyuan Yi (Peking University)
• Karis Tenneson (SIG)
• John Dilger (SIG)
• Yelena Finegold (FAO)
