Abstract: EMBRAPA Florestas, Curitiba, Brazil: The workshop was held at the headquarters of EMBRAPA Florestas in Curitiba/Colombo from 13th – 15th April, as a follow-up of EMBRAPA’s visit in Ispra in November 2015 (supported by the 8th EU-Brazil Sector Dialogues Programme). EMBAPA Florestas is responsible for the development of a remote sensing – based methodology for the ‘Landscape Study’ as part of the currently ongoing Brazilian National Forest Inventory. In this context, the newest version of the JRC IMPACT Toolbox was presented. IMPACT is an essential tool integrated in the methodology of the ‘NFI Landscape Study’, which should at some stage be applied to more than 5.000 sample units. Seven researchers from EMBRAPA Florestas attended the workshop. INPE, São José dos Campos, Brazil: A three-day workshop, attended by 15 researchers, was held at the INPE Remote Sensing department, the main topics discussed were the possible usage by the JRC of the new version of INPE’s TerraLib segmentation software, the presentation of the new version of the JRC IMPACT Toolbox, several joint INPE-JRC research projects (long-term forest cover change assessment in the Amazon, selective logging monitoring in Mato Grosso State), and, in the general the way forward of the remote sensing – based forestry research collaboration between the two research centres, with a specific focus on forest degradation monitoring. INPE is responsible for the technical aspects regarding the Brazilian REDD reporting.
