Overview of Forest Monitoring and Measurement Systems

Roraima has an environmental monitoring and prevention division that monitors the licensed areas. The state is in the process of adapting a monitoring system offered free of charge by the state of Pará. Roraima must purchase the satellite images to activate full functionality of the system. FEMARH uses PRODES data to monitor forest cover.

The state is also conducting the rural environmental registry (CAR) and elaborating the PRA.
