A new collaboration between Aidenvironment and Mapbiomas Alerts

Aidenvironment has just officialized a non-financial collaboration with Mapbiomas in Brazil.

Mapbiomas is an initiative from the Climate Observatory, a network of more than 30 Brazilian Civil Society Organizations. They developed a robust methodology for mapping land-use change in the Brazilian territory that is publicly available through their online platform. A parallel initiative is the Mapbiomas Alerts, which processes the most recent alerts of deforestation, checking its links to the auto-declared registration, CAR, part of the Forest Code implementation.

The aim of Mapbiomas Alerts is to give a reliable and consolidated analysis of deforestation in a more real-time approach. This partnership is going to give a much higher quality in imagery analysis to the Aidenvironment work on linking recent deforestation to the agricultural commodities supply chain; our Rapid Response initiative. With this, Aidenvironment aims to enhance the connection of the work of Brazilian organizations to international initiatives, improving quality and potentializing outreach of both sides.
