How can we ensure that stakeholders at the local, national, and international levels take action for nature and climate using cutting-edge science? On Sunday 22 September, during the UN Secretary General's Climate Week, we explored a sampling of tools and platforms that allow you to access spatial data for forest monitoring and conservation planning purposes. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) showcased the UN Biodiversity Lab as well as the tools and key features of the platform to support biodiversity reporting and monitoring, and the implementation of national policies. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) showed how Open Foris can be used to support policymakers to conduct national-level analyses on forest monitoring for climate action. Equator Prize 2019 Winner Comunidades Nativas de Nuevo Saposoa y Patria Nueva de Mediación Callería, from Peru, explored how communities can effectively use satellite imagery and mobile phone apps to rapidly detect and respond to illegal deforestation.
