Document summary

In an increasingly environmentally and financially unstable world it has never been more important to bridge the gap between those working in the field of financial services and those in environmental research, and to foster a mutually beneficial knowledge exchange relationship between these two vital sectors. This report present findings following a workshop, a series of interviews and a symposium with the financial services sector and the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO) to scope forestry data and the modelling needs of investment decision-makers in support of sustainable forests and forest carbon. This research will culminate in October 2010 with a final report on the subject.
