// Ideas

  • Where are the valuable natural resources (forest, wild ecosystems, and biodiversity) to protect?

  • Which areas are converted/deforested for agro and forestry production?

  • How to unify / harmonise maps as various users have different kind of maps?

  • Which areas will be most affected by climate change?

  • Which areas have biodiversity and ecosystem service issues?

  • What will be the type and magnitude of the impacts at landscape level? From climate change, ecosystem collapse

  • Where is there illegal logging? (e.g. compare with permits emitted)

Potential data : GBIF, IBAT Solagro
