Can Earth Observation services for silviculture help business continuity during the COVID-19 situation? The H2020 My Sustainable Forest project has developed a pre-commercial service platform for forest stakeholders, compliant with open and standard interfaces, which integrates Earth Observation data into the forest stakeholders’ decision making processes and operations.

MySustainableForest partners are aware that the Covid-19 lockdown continues to affect the forestry world, however the exact nature of this impact will differ by sector and region. For this reason, the project consortium has launched a survey to know your input, in order to better understand the situation and ascertain whether Earth Observation products can help you to continue operating your business effectively through these difficult times.      

The project team plans to publish anonymised results of the survey on the My Sustainable Forest website, as well as on Twitter. Preliminary conclusions will be published by mid-June, and if you provide your contact details we will let you know the results of the survey as soon as they are published.

This survey will only take you 5-10 minutes to complete. MySustainableForest consortium encourages you to submit your survey response no later than 30 June 2020.

Participate in the survey!

We thank you for your time and participation!
