Land & Carbon Lab’s 2023 Summit is a global conference for policy makers and practitioners harnessing geospatial data and monitoring to advance land sustainability solutions for this decade’s climate, nature, and development goals. 

Land & Carbon Lab’s 2023 Summit global conference is intended for policymakers and practitioners who are harnessing geospatial data and monitoring to advance land sustainability solutions for this decade’s climate, nature, and development goals. Building on Global Forest Watch’s 2019 Summit, Land & Carbon Lab’s 2023 Summit will convene hundreds of participants, connecting those at the frontiers of data and technology innovation with those at the frontlines of land use and land management decisions. The Summit aims to advance deployment of geospatial data and monitoring to:   

  • Accelerate locally-led landscape restoration  
  • Tackle deforestation and nature crime 
  • Strengthen community-led land stewardship 
  • Ensure accountability for conversion-free supply chains 
  • Enhance policy and finance mechanisms to scale nature-based solutions 
  • Plan land use for a more sustainable food future 
  • Transparently track progress towards global targets for nature and climate 

IIASA researchers Steffen Fritz, Linda See, Dmitry Shchepashchenko and Juan Carlos Laso Bayas from the Novel Data Ecosystems for Sustainability Research Group (NODES) will participate highlighting the related work in NODES.
