Title MONITORING DEFORESTATION, LOGGING AND LAND USE CHANGE IN THE PAN AMAZONIAN FOREST – PANAMAZON II
Status OPERATIONAL
Executing agency
ACTO - AMAZON COOPERATION TREATY ORGANIZATION
Summary The project will address constrains that are limiting the use of the Indicator of the Forest Cover by implementing national monitoring systems as a key element so as to increase the governance in the Amazon. In order to facilitate countries interaction and integrated action in boundary zones the project will strengthen the dialogue and coordination platforms linked to the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO). The project is divided in three components:
(i)
Coordination of participatory processes for the development of Forest Cover National Monitoring Systems;
(ii)
Implementation of Forest Cover National Monitoring Systems; and
(iii)
Strengthening of the existing platforms for regional dialogue and coordination on forest management, with focus on forest cover monitoring with the possibility to include other criteria and indicators for sustainable forest management.
The systems will make use of the technology platform developed by the Government of Brazil and the methodology already adopted in this country will be considered for the implementation of the National Systems. Furthermore, the project will contribute to the improvement of knowledge in the sector, to share new technologies, to prioritize lines of action for the regional cooperation and to share experiences on the enforcement of forest laws.
