COMIFAC Regional Workshop held in Brazzaville, 2 - 4 February 2010
There has been long standing interest in monitoring of Congo Basin Forests, largely driven by research on biodiversity, ecosystems, land use and earth system observations. As a result of the inclusion of REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) in recent climate change treaty negotiations, the monitoring of the forests of the Congo Basin has become the subject of more intense interest.
