Monitoring the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration – Launch of the Framework for Ecosystem Restoration Monitoring (FERM) and Dryland Restoration Initiative Platform (DRIP)

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 actions on the ground and contribute significantly to meeting the ambitious targets of the restoration, biodiversity and climate agendas. This session will spotlight key solutions and highlight 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) with a special focus on the integration and implementation of the Drylands Restoration Monitoring Platform (DRIP) developed by FAO in support of the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
