Connecting space to village: Geospatial information for improved environmental decision-making

In this session, SERVIR-Amazonia and Alliance of Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) will explore how advancements in geospatial and Earth Observation technology are enhancing forest monitoring, disaster forecasting and evidence-based decision-making in the Amazon biome. Drawing on novel innovations in remote sensing and satellite imagery, panelists will discuss pathways towards effectively connecting ‘Space to Village’, scaling public and private investments to improve internet connectivity in isolated areas, and strengthening locally-led efforts to protect biodiversity and Indigenous territories via the use of geospatial technology.
