These initiatives have, however, not been able to reverse trends of deforestation and forest degradation in the tropics, despite this being the main objective for many of them. Existing instruments like REDD+ and FLEGT are facing major obstacles throughout the design and implementation process.

MySustainableForest - Operational sustainable forestry with satellite-based remote sensing

Forests, cornerstone of the EU economy (42% of EU land) and source of multiple social and environmental benefits, need to be managed according to the sustainability principles stated in the EU Forest Strategy.

REINFFORCE - Resource INFrastructures for monitoring, adapting and protecting European Atlantic FORests under Changing climatE

REINFFORCE project corresponds to Priority B. INTERREG 4B operational program. The reality of global warming is universally accepted with optimistic scenarios predicting a change of 4°C in the next 50 years. But the regional consequences of this change are unknown, with more emphasis in the oceanic area, because of e.g. climatic (evolution of regional rainfall, evolution of Gulf Stream, etc.), economic (evolution of cost of the energy, of renewable solutions, evolution of world trade, etc.) and environmental (evolution of pest an diseases, sea level, etc.) uncertainties.
