This report offers an accessible overview of the possibilities that remotely sensed data provide to biodiversity monitoring in the context of the Aichi Targets. Focusing particularly on space-borne (satellite) sensors whilst also considering airborne and ground-based systems, it explores the obstacles and opportunities for greater use of remotely sensed data. Aimed primarily at non-specialist policy users, its intention is to bring some clarity to this complex landscape and to bridge the gap between the EO and biodiversity decision-making communities, enabling productive dialogue through a shared understanding of needs and opportunities.
