The Indonesian National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN) and Bogor Agricultural University (IPB) signed a memorandum of understanding with Ecometrica to collaborate beyond the Forests 2020 project. The agreement will ensure the company’s continued involvement in Indonesia and its role in supporting sustainable forest management and the conservation of tropical forests.

The UK-based firm has been helping to monitor the effects of palm oil plantation and other agricultural sectors on Indonesia’s tropical rainforests, while guiding efforts to reverse deforestation through the UK Space Agency-funded Forests 2020 initiative.

Its MoU, signed at a conference in Saarbrucken, Germany, with LAPAN and IPB, means that these two Indonesian organisations will work with Ecometrica for many years beyond 2020.
