During their speeches, the OSS and GAN representatives, emphasized the role of regional institutions and the importance of their support to countries in order to strengthen their reporting systems in terms of land degradation.
Indeed, this event highlighted the importance of Earth Observation data for monitoring land degradation and their contribution to providing decision-makers and populations with relevant information on the state of the resources. It also aimed to alert the stakeholders involved in the land degradation data reporting, identification and analysis process and to have their capacities built.
