The specific objectives of the Action are:
Examine existing reporting systems in the Member States (MS)
while developing supports for monitoring and reporting of GHG emissions and removals from land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF).
Propose developing a pan-European system
for collectively estimating the change in carbon stocks and resulting GHG emissions and removals from land use, land use change and forestry.
Carry out a pilot study on the emerging methods
for developing these estimates, building largely on Copernicus data and services such as CLC+ components and Sentinel imagery, with the aim of capitalizing LULUCF Monitoring on existing pan-EU data sets.
Evaluate these integrated national estimates
at selected test regions using long-term time series of maps derived from satellite data.
Analyze the role of Copernicus data
and benefit they could contribute.
