Date: Nov. 10 2022

How to mitigate the impacts of climate change and adapt to it? By joining forces and sharing our data and our skills. Tropisco is a collaboration between the French European Agency (CNES), the CESBIO laboratory (French CNRS) and the GlobEO startup, that aims at monitoring tropical deforestation from Earth Observation data. Since November 2022, UNEP’s WorldEnvironment Situation Room (through its MapX cartographic platform), hosts tropical deforestation data from TropiSCO, currently on Cambodia, French Guiana, Gabon, Guyana, Lao, Suriname and Viet Nam. The map is updated automatically when new forest loss is detected.
