Our scientific research has been guided by influencing forest policy
The Primary Forests & Climate Program has pioneered improved identification and mapping of primary forests globally. It has developed an improved method that is able to identify remnant primary forest, in addition to much larger intact forest landscapes. These smaller remnant areas still provide significant ecosystem integrity and the resulting benefits. However, existing mapping often failed to identify these areas, risking further loss and degradation.
This improved mapping will support better forest landscape management by ensuring primary forest areas are accurately and fully mapped.
