Showcase – Zero deforestation monitoring in Ethiopia

To promote zero-deforestation coffee, GIZ is establishing a sustainable production region in Oromia, Ethiopia.  UNIQUE developed a monitoring framework for sustainable production at the landscape level, using the latest information and communication technology. We implemented a digital baseline survey focusing on living income, deforestation, degradation and a food consumption score.
