Technologies and innovations to better understand changes in land use

Watch this discussion forum from the first day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2014, in Lima, Peru, during COP20.

Technology and big data are transforming the way we monitor forests and climate in a post-Kyoto world. But top-down data from remote sensing can have huge gaps and important limitations. This session discusses the limitations of remotely sensed and crowd-sourced data and their usefulness.
