Training on Operational Logging and Degradation Monitoring (OLDM)

Training on Operational Logging and Degradation Monitoring (OLDM)

From 10 to 21 February Department of Forest Inspection (DOFI) hosted a training on Operational Logging and Degradation Monitoring (OLDM), with its objective to have an operational system in place, delivering alerts in near real-time about suspicious activities outside conversion areas.

The training brought together central and provincial trainees to follow up with capacity building in monitoring of forest degradation. The workshop was a joint-activity and supported by three projects (ADB BCC, KfW ICBF, GIZ ProFEB) that utilizes the same tool for different purposes. The training will be followed by a series of field activities to apply the learned knowledge and confirm possible cases of forest degradation that were identified during the training.
