DescriptionGlobal Forest Watch (GFW) is an initiative of the World Resources Institute. It is an international partnership of non-governmental organizations, private companies, government agencies and research institutions. GFW partners work in regions that are home to many of the world's most important forest ecosystems (North America, South America, Central Africa, Russia/Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia). The GFW network supports better decisions on the management and conservation of these forests by: Developing practical applications of remote sensing and information technologies to map and monitor the condition of priority forests; Providing training and technical assistance to governments, corporations, and non-governmental organizations in the use of these tools; Building bridges among business, government, and civil society institutions to promote collaborative problem solving; Helping to design strategies to successfully incorporate new approaches into decision-making processes.
