Call for Applications: Training on the use of GIS in Forest Management in Cameroon

What is forest management?

Forest management is defined in Cameroon as the planning, implementation and monitoring-evaluation in space and time in harmony with other land uses with a view to achieving one or more clearly defined  objectives concerning the sustained production of forest goods and services of all kinds, without undermining the intrinsic value of the forests or compromising their future productivity, without causing undesirable effects on the physical and social environment, in compliance with the laws and regulations in force. It is therefore essential to model forestry activities using GIS tools.

Why use GIS in forest management?

The management of forest management activities requires the mastery of information and tools related to GIS. From the delimitation of the forest to be managed to the extraction of logs, the use of GIS tools is essential to respect, plan and follow the activities of the forestry exploitation.
