    Online facilitated course Forest and Land Monitoring for Climate Action - SEPAL 2022
    Also available in:

    Interested in digital platforms and tools for more effective forest and land monitoring? Learn how to use SEPAL. The goal is to support knowledge and skills development to operationally apply high-resolution satellite imagery to critical forest and land monitoring in tropical forest countries. The course is offered for free and open to all interested in digital platforms and tools for forest and land monitoring, and is entirely based on an interactive, learning-by-doing approach, offering a wide range of case studies, hands-on activities and online facilitated sessions. When: from 24 March to 7 May 2023 Where: on the FAO e-learning Academy Collaborative moodle platform Language: English, French and Spanish.

    Practical guidance for peatland restoration monitoring in Indonesia
    A remote sensing approach using FAO-SEPAL platform
    2021
    Also available in:

    This technical document is intended to give an overview of the use of several remote sensing tools produced by FAO for peatland restoration monitoring in Indonesia. At the core of these tools is the Soil Moisture Mapping (SMM) module in the FAO System for Earth Observation Data Access, Processing and Analysis for Land Monitoring (SEPAL). The Soil Moisture Mapping module was first created using available free, global satellite datasets and meteorological observations to retrieve soil moisture worldwide based on the algorithms developed by Greifeneder et al. 20191. To interpret the soil moisture mapping results, this report shows step-by-step followed methodologies for: the selection of available field data for validation; the study of land cover physical properties in the Indonesian landscape that have an influence on the correct interpretation of the product; and detecting, characterizing, and monitoring land cover change within time series (BFAST). The aim is to provide practical guidance to perform peatland monitoring analysis and strengthen capacities of practitioners and institutions in charge of peatland management, monitoring and reporting with the help of tools on SEPAL. This builds on the report “Peatland mapping and monitoring: recommendations and technical overview” (FAO, 2020). The guidance focuses on the description step by step of FAO peatland monitoring tools, showing its advantages and limitations. It also contains summaries of peatland ecology and condition for its assessment with remote sensing products. This document offers recommendations to interpret the results and integrate them into national monitoring frameworks.
