Forestlink: Real-time Monitoring

Feb 2017

Real-time community-based monitoring is a tool that connects local people with national law enforcement in an effort to stop illegal logging and deforestation. Using our bespoke ForestLink system, forest communities can send alerts and evidence of a number of threats to the forest, even in remote areas with no mobile connectivity. Our ForestLink system can be used to address a wide range of threats, including illegal logging, illegal mining and oil spills. This project is currently supporting hundreds of communities across Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Ghana and Peru.
