D CARB-19-04: Forest Biomass measurements for GFOI countries
emailShare
linkPermalink
Number:
CARB-19-04
Title:
Forest Biomass measurements for GFOI countries
Status:
Open
Creation Year:
2019
Completion Date:
2022 Q1 (553 days remaining)
Description:
The new generation of Above Ground Biomass measurement missions offers great promise to forest monitoring capabilities. SDCG and WGCV Land Product Validation group will work with GFOI Capacity Building partners;including World Bank;to accelerate the policy relevance and application of these missions through strong communications;education;and interchange between GFOI countries and space data providers. SDCG will promote to GFOI countries the CEOS Biomass Protocol currently under development by WGCV LPV (due Q1 2019);and will develop education materials to help inform countries as to the opportunities ahead. Measures to address the policy relevance of the data from the relevant missions will be identified;making best use of the user and policy interface provided by GFOI.

Change POC to Stephen Ward, SDCG SEC. This task will proceed through 2020 in discussion with the CEOS supply agencies and using Chris Barber as a bridge to SilvaCarbon and the GFOI Capacity Building Component. It has been suggested also we look at biomass targets related to the 2023 Global Stocktake.
