Seminar on GHG assessment in agriculture, forestry and other land use

The seminar “GHG assessment in agriculture, forestry and other land use”, organized by the Institute for Environmental Solutions, took place on October 28, 2021. 

The aim of the seminar was to discuss existing methods of greenhouse gas accounting in agriculture, forestry and other land use and assess the possibilities for Earth observation data to support the monitoring. The event gathered specialists from the fields of monitoring and research, as well as specialists from Copernicus Programme and the European Commission.
