Sentinel landscapes

Sentinel landscapes

In Phase 1, FTA devised its own framework to observe changes in landscapes, their causes and consequences. This innovative set-up, called Sentinel Landscapes (SL), is at a turning point.

In order to understand how to further develop SL in Phase 2 of FTA we are critically examining the current context in terms of international demand; the key questions which FTA aims to answer; and the evolution of the funding environment, especially for long-term observatories.

We are examining where SL currently stands, what the tangible results have been since its inception, and what the challenges were during its roll-out in Phase 1.
