A key pillar of the Paris Agreement is the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF), which aims to raise ambitions for climate action through transparent country reporting. The development of National Forest Monitoring Systems (NFMS) with open and transparent data can enable action for forest and climate. In light of the climate emergency, it is time to scale up efforts toward accurate, open and transparent forest data, to catalyse higher ambitions under the Paris Agreement.
The new FAO webinar “Open and Transparent Forest data: Innovation and Technology for Climate Action” will highlight global and national efforts’ on forest monitoring that support the implementation of the transparency framework under the Paris Agreement.
