ISC and its partners organised the 9th edition of the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA78) on 12-29 September 2023.
The role and contribution of science to attaining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be the central theme of the Summit. The objective is to develop and launch science collaborations to demonstrate global science mechanisms and activities to support the attainment of the UN SDGs, Agenda 2030 and Local2030. The meeting will also prepare input for the United Nations Summit of the Future, which will take place during UNGA79 beginning on 12 September 2024.

Feedback form is now closed.

The system developed by the Brazilian National Institute for Space Research (INPE) to monitor deforestation in the Amazon has earned academic prestige and international recognition. INPE helped create a geoprocessing culture in Brazil. In 1987, the field was nonexistent. Today, the industry is worth R$ 15 billion per year in Brazil.

This panel will discuss the use of satellites and geospatial analysis as research and monitoring tools for deforestation in the Amazon region, drawing from Brazil's experience with the topic in the 2000s through the PRODES and DETER systems. The debate will focus on current challenges of a monitoring and control-based strategy, as well as new possibilities for utilizing these tools.
