10th April 2019: John McIntyre Conference Centre, Edinburgh
What is it?
The Plenary at the Forests 2020 Global Conference will explore the future of space technologies in monitoring and protecting tropical forests worldwide. The Plenary will also demonstrate the progress of the Forests 2020 project so far, including a showcase of all the exciting technologies that have been developed to fight deforestation and degradation across the tropics, and how they could be applied to forests all over the world.
Why is the Plenary important?
