Watch this high-level session on the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21. How can we make progress on a new global climate deal without the ability to accurately measure emissions from deforestation and land use change around the world? What is the role of the communities, companies, and governments who manage the world’s carbon-rich lands? How can we equip these stakeholders with the tools they need to manage carbon successfully while growing economic opportunities?
“Pixel Perfection” will explore these questions with a diverse panel of speakers, while presenting potentially game-changing new technologies for measuring progress towards local and global goals.
