The FAO Science and Innovation Forum 2023 was themed “Science and Innovation for Climate Action” which is aligned with the overarching theme of the World Food Forum “Agrifood Systems Transformation Accelerates Climate Action” and supports the global efforts toward reaching the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the FAO’s “Four Betters”.

The spotlight of FAO SIF 2023 was on novel climate technologies, innovative practices, and local food systems knowledge, with a focus on climate change adaptation, resilience, and mitigation to enable cross-cultural and cross-sector strategic conversations on how science, technology, and innovation can transform agrifood systems and positively impact their vulnerability to climate change.

Our talk highlighted nadar’s research and work on reliable carbon and deforestation monitoring:

  • The history of forest data collection and how even today antiquated methods are applied
  • How remote sensing can monitor various forest variables from space
  • That current carbon MRV relies more on estimation than on actual measurement
  • Our fully digital carbon MRV we are working on at nadar
  • How reliable satellite monitoring can help cut the ties between agriculture and deforestation
