Forests have a key function in reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHGs), maintaining biodiversity and serving as a source of livelihood for a substantial amount of the world’s population. Forest ecosystems have a key role in the Paris Agreement of the UN Climate Convention. GAF is specialized in Forest Monitoring applications by using cost-effective geospatial technologies and satellite borne data providing ‘fit for purpose’ information services to decision makers at both national and international levels.
