This article posts during GLF 2014. See in English | Espanol

Watch this discussion forum from the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2014, in Lima, Peru, during COP20. More and more countries have established and institutionalized sustainable, long-term and multi-purpose information systems in the context of REDD+ to support well-informed national policy formulation and decision making at different levels, and to meet national and international reporting needs. This panel discusses if they are used beyond estimating carbon stocks, how they improve global estimates and information, and how they can be most cost effective.
