Mergdata: Empowering Communities and Protecting Forests with Innovative Solutions

March 21, 2024

Did you know…

Forests are home to 80% of all known amphibian species.

Over 30% of new diseases reported since 1960 are attributed to land use change, including deforestation.

Forests contain over half the global carbon stock.

Forests play a crucial role in mitigating climate change. They act as carbon sinks, absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it in trees and soil.

An area roughly equivalent to 14 million football pitches is lost per year to deforestation.

Forested watersheds and wetlands provide 75% of the world’s accessible freshwater.

Forests hold cultural significance for many indigenous communities around the world; they provide food, medicine, shelter, and spiritual nourishment.


In the heart of the dense rainforest, amidst the chorus of exotic birdsong and the rustle of foliage, there exists a world where ancient wisdom intertwines with modern innovation—a world where the fate of the forest hangs in delicate balance.

Technology, Innovation, and Forests

Innovation and technology are not just buzzwords; they drive a revolutionary transformation in forest monitoring, offering new avenues to combat deforestation and empower communities. As we commemorate the International Day of Forests 2024 under the theme “Forests and Innovation: New Solutions for a Better World,” it’s crucial to underscore the transformative role of technology in safeguarding our forests and promoting sustainable practices.
