Showcase – Digitizing forestry in Ethiopia

Amhara Forest Enterprise (AFE) is consolidating its forest activities in the North-East of Ethiopia. Forest Management is restructured and adjusted to international market requirements. This includes the change from a pencil based reporting to the digital age for real time decision making.  Our digital solutions support AFE to get an overview over their actual forest stands with spatial tools. Together we digitized the entire data flow with a customized APP for silvicultural treatment, stand inventory and plot boundary measurements.
