Dynamic global monitoring system for forest restoration​

Susan Cook Patton and Peter Ellis of The Nature Conservancy, together with TerraCarbon's David Shoch, have published a comment in Nature Climate Change titled "Dynamic global monitoring needed to use restoration of forest cover as a climate solution."  The authors argue that a global network of existing forest restoration projects with control plots and remote-sensing technologies is needed to rapidly update and refine estimates of climate mitigation potential, track progress towards restoration goals and course-correct actions to improve restoration outcomes.​Read the article here.
