Description

A video animation of the dynamic geoportal developed by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE), with the support of the UN-REDD Programme for their National Forestry Monitoring System (NFMS). 

This portal is part of the country's efforts in developing a robust and transparent national forest monitoring system for REDD+ activities: deforestation, forest degradation, forest conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks.

The DRC NFMS brings together data from many sources, and aims to combine them into a forest management tool related to REDD+ and on the DRC's forests policies and measures. 

The portal http://www.rdc-snsf.org is a model for a transparent and in-depth presentation of data, the first in its kind to be country led and country-specific.
