Speaker: Gabriel Daldegan, Land System Scientist @Moore Center for Science at Conservation International
Description: Earth observations play a key role in planning and monitoring for the achievement of a land degradation neutral world. Trends.Earth is an example of how tools can bring together the power of earth observations, cloud computing, and user inputs to democratize access to information for decision making. In this presentation we go over how countries are tracking land degradation, the datasets used, the indicators, and how a novel tool is supporting the assessments.
During the discussion portion of this webinar we also talk about the SCGIS Global Scholars Program and Gabriel's experince as a former Scholar!
