In this lunchbreak, Rémi d'Annunzio, Forest Officer, Forest Data Partnership Science and Data Lead at FAO, will present the innovative open-source solution Whisp and illustrate how it contributes to compliance with the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR). During the lunchbreak, participants will have the chance to try out Whisp themselves.

Whisp stands for "WHat IS in that Plot?". The tool can be used to analyse geodata to obtain relevant information about land use within a specific plot. In this way, Whisp supports the due diligence process for EUDR requirements. By combining and analysing data from different sources, Whisp provides a detailed understanding of land use.

The one-hour online meeting takes place on the first Friday of the month.

The date is Friday, 03.05.2024­­­­ from 12.00–1.00pm CET.

The event will be held in English.
