A series of webinars are being held to share the outcomes of the UK-led project on Scoping the
potential for Earth Observation (EO) to provide agricultural activity data for inventory

About the project
The project aimed to critically evaluate the ability of existing or near launch EO sensors to fulfil the data
requirements of the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) inventory. Information on priority data
requirements were collected through an international stocktake, and the project assessed the extent to which EO
data could fulfil some of these requirements. The international stocktake also gathered information on experiences
of using EO for inventory compilation and addressed whether such approaches represent cost saving against
existing survey methods.
Share the outcomes of the international stocktake on inventory activity data requirements and potential
and existing uses of EO (as well as perceptions of EO);
Identify opportunities for collaboration and capacity building;
Share details of international case studies on use of EO in inventory compilation and the results of a novel
UK case study;
An overall objective is to facilitate information sharing between inventory practitioners, EO specialists ...
