Side event at EU Pavillion at the UNFCCC COP23, Bonn, Germany
“Wetlands, Peatlands and Satellites”
Date: 11.11.2017, 16:00-17:30
The side event will invite to the Satellite based Wetland Observation service (SWOS) with its free tools and portals for wetland/peatland monitoring and services for reporting obligations like SDG 6.6.1 and Ramsar. It will inform about wetland/peatland frameworks, Ramsar priorities for peatlands and how the Project “Peatland Restore” will provide valuable estimations to national decision makers on how much GHG can be mitigated under different scenarios.
The SWOS Training Workshop will take place from 16 – 18 January 2018 in Munich.
The purpose of the training workshop is to teach user organization how to apply and work with satellite data for wetland mapping, how to use the SWOS service components (maps and indicators, software tools and the portal) and to demonstrate how to integrate SWOS products into selected service cases, to support e.g. Ramsar or SDG 6.6.1 reporting.
