Virtual training session to train users on the use of MISLAND, August 25th, 2021


Did you know that the second largest source of greenhouse gas emissions is Land sector with 25% of global emissions right after the energy sector and that half of said emissions (5-10 GtCO2 annually) result from deforestation and forest degradation?  

Indeed, 2.6 billion tons of carbon dioxide, representing one-third of the CO2 emissions comes from burning fossil fuels and is absorbed by forests every year (source: IUCN). 

The Misland platform was developed as part of the GMES&Africa project. It makes it possible to monitor Land Degradation in North Africa and integrates the assessment of Forest Carbon Emissions through dedicated Geo-Web-Services. To find out more, a virtual training session was held today to train end users on the use of Misland to assess Forest Carbon Emissions.
