The ESA EO4SD Forest Management cluster – aims to demonstrate the utility and benefit of mainstreaming EO-based forest related products and services for improved Forest Management for IFI programmes and stakeholders in Client States (CS). The consortium is led by GAF AG (Germany) and a Consortium of European and Canadian expert partners (Caribou Space/UK, Hatfield/Canada, Indufor/Finland, CLS/France, Wageningen University/Netherlands). Phase 1 was September 2020 to June 2022 and has been focused on strategic planning and stakeholder engagement. The consortium engaged the World Bank (WB) and Asian Development Bank (ADB) teams who requested support to over ~50 programmes – highlighting a very high appetite for integrating EO products into their work practices. These were prioritised to seven programmes across ten countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
