Innovations in technology for restoration monitoring in critical landscapes

Technology and innovation for restoration monitoring is rapidly advancing, supported by developments in geospatial technology and imagery. If deployed effectively across critical landscapes, these technical solutions for restoration planning and monitoring can drive restoration on the ground and contribute to meeting the ambitious targets of the restoration agenda. This session will highlight key solutions and ongoing challenges in ecosystem restoration monitoring with a focus on drylands. The session will feature a soft launch of the Framework for Ecosystem Restoration Monitoring (FERM), developed by FAO in support of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, and demonstrate applications for drylands.
