RimbaWatch - Citizen Science and Data on Deforestation

Environmental watchdog RimbaWatch have been hard at work, keeping an eye on forests by using open source data and analytics, and shining a spotlight on deforestation in Malaysia, while also highlighting environmental abuses. They recently revealed a one-stop-centre for data on deforestation on their website, which for the first time allows users to visualise past and future deforestation on the data portal. They also just released their quarterly report, covering Jan-March 2023, which has identified 9,372ha of new threats to forests, and six land rights conflicts involving indigenous communities. We get updates from Adam Farhan, the co-founder and director of RimbaWatch.
