The EOMonDis Project (Bringing Earth Observation Services for Monitoring Dynamic Forest Disturbances to the Users) aims to offer operational Earth Observation (EO) based tropical forest monitoring services to support countries and a wide range of users with accurate relevant forest information data for their management and reporting requirements. The overall goals of EOMonDis are achieved by the following main tasks:
Ongoing in-depth market and user requirement assessment for specific forest products in relation to forest area, deforestation and degradation and above-ground biomass in humid and dry tropical biomes.
Development of new robust methods for satellite data processing and prototyping a commercial service platform that offers a comprehensive range of map products for forest monitoring in the humid and dry tropical sub-biomes.
Partners will test and integrate the technical components of the innovation results into operational processing chains, perform accuracy assessments and demonstrate the improved product generation in the larger demonstration sites.
The EOMonDis project is embedded in the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Union. Products and services developed during the course of EOMonDis can support countries to fulfil their reporting requirements in the framework of REDD+ and assist to implement and monitor Zero Deforestation commitments.
