Abstract: From September 30 till October 02, 2013 about 30 scientists, decision makers and environmental non-governmental organizations participated in the JRC’s Workshop on Remote Sensing for Conservation in Ispra, Italy. The workshop was organized by the JRC, and promoted under the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites’ (CEOS) Biodiversity Group. Scope of the workshop was to discuss “real-world” application of RS data to conservation policy with a particular focus on developing countries. The participants demonstrated and debated how existing RS methods, tools and products have been and can be used to guide conservation policy and how potentially they can impact the policy making procedure, and highlighted the obstacles such as effective communication and data access and further needs for mainstreaming such information into conservation policy making.
