It is based on the first edition, which was delivered from 24 March to 7 May 2023 in English, Spanish and French.

The overall objective of this course is to support knowledge and skills development to operationally apply high-resolution satellite imagery to critical forest and land monitoring in tropical forest countries. More specifically, the course focuses on how the System for Earth Observation Data Access, Processing and Analysis for Land Monitoring (SEPAL) platform can support land and forest monitoring for climate action.

This facilitated course has been adapted and made available in self-paced mode to share the content and associated resources that were developed for it, offering a comprehensive learning experience.
