With the Green Growth app, interested citizens can contribute to keep Suriname the greenest country on earth with 93% forest cover. Citizen scientists who keep watch on tree logging can contribute to complement existing national data on forest conservation. Data gathered by citizens can help scientists understand the drivers of tree logging and find solutions for it.
Suriname has few data on its forests due to limited well-funded research and monitoring institutions. The country aims to gather much needed data to effectively make decisions, plan and manage forests. Suriname’s forest contributes to the world’s climate change as one of two carbon negative countries globally and it harbors the world’s fourth largest amount of freshwater resources.
Data gathering through the Green Growth app is the glue for creating cohesion on forest conservation among the 600.000 people living in Suriname. The goal is to create an active community of forest watchers and keep Suriname green.
Green Growth Apps are running on the SPOTTERON Citizen Science platform.
