Learning Session 7: Satellite Data for REDD+ MRV
Aurelie Shapiro, Remote Sensing Specialist with WWF Germany
The WWF Forest and Climate Initiative's free online Learning Sessions are designed to leverage and share REDD+ knowledge and expertise. Learning and capacity building are key to having up-to-date information on the latest REDD+ developments. Every month we invite a REDD+ expert to present on a key issue, so that REDD+ practitioners from around the world can have access to the latest information related to REDD+.

Join Aurélie Shapiro, Remote Sensing Specialist with WWF Germany, as she takes us a through an overview of satellite data for REDD+ MRV. Learn about a number of data sources available specifically for REDD+ MRV, how to select imagery based on timing resolution, and how to budget for imagery for forest mapping and monitoring.
The webinar will also include a spotlight on RapidEye, an imagery resource that can help provide data for REDD+ MRV.
A Q + A session will follow the presentation.
