How we have used Forest Watcher:
Asociacion Amazonicos por la Amazonia
Association (AMPA)
https://ampaperu.info/
• Train and build skills of local monitors and
competent authorities.
• Navigate, collect and verify tree cover loss in
conservation initiatives.
• Generate reports to share information to the
competent authorities to take joint actions.
• Used by ARA in workshops to accredit forest
custodians.

Best practices and lessons learned.
How the new FW updates will impact
our work.
New updates, new challenges!
• Incorporate these new features
into the communal control and
surveillance systems.
• Improvements with planning
to monitor and verify
deforestation alerts.
• Consolidate monitoring
networks, identify new leaders
to monitor and verify
deforestation alerts.
Technology reconnects with youth!
• Collaborative and articulated
work between local
communities - civil society and
competent authorities.
• Design and develop didactic and
friendly materials to build
capacities.
• Technology is just a tool! First, a
strategy must be developed
that includes the use of tools.
Thanks!

HAkA's Stories
of Forest Watcher
2017 ACTIVITIES
• HAkA is one of the institutions that
ran the beta testing of Forest
Watcher.
• Introduced and practiced it with the
internal team and Leuser
Conservation Forum (FKL).
• Disseminated Forest Watcher and GFW to
many parties (FMUs, National Park,
Governments, Police, Law Enforcer, NGOs,
Journalists, and Local Communities).
• Participants discovered that there are
applications that have data deforestation
alerts similar to fire alerts that can appear on
a smartphone.
2018-2022
We love this tool. Aside from being able to guide us to a
deforestation area deep in the forest, we also don't
worry about getting lost. We can returnto the starting
point by following the track.
"
ACEH POLICE
"
CHALLENGES
Smartphone-based jobs are not very
popular yet. Capacity and feature
limitations on personal smartphones.
Willingness and initiative to utilize
the latest technology is still low.
Help provide smartphones that
can be used for Forest Watcher.
Conduct continuous training and
assistance supported by the Small
Grants Fund.
• Forest Watcher is a very powerful
tool. It's even equipped with a
reporting system.
• We also use other applications
that are also commonly used by
foresters in Aceh such as Avenza
Maps and Mapinr.
• However, the deforestation alerts
are available in Forest Watcher.
Avenza Maps
Mapinr
Visualization on
Google My Maps
• Adding ground check data
from the field in an Excel
format.
• Each finding point has its
database and photos.
• Overlay with GLAD Alerts
data and field tracks.
HOW THE NEW FOREST
WACHER SUPPORTS OUR WORK
• New features in FW that are more stable and can
make forest monitoring easier.
• No longer need to carry a compass, GPS or printed
maps. We can just use Forest Watcher.
• The team can get deforestation alerts information
more quickly (weekly) instead of waiting for the
field guide maps that we usually make every
month.

  6. Gabby  Forest Watcher was then thought of as a mobile solution for monitoring forests in low connectivity settings. The app was first piloted by the Jane Goodall Institute in Uganda a few years ago with local forest rangers and communities, who at the time realized they could only monitor their areas by going through trails. It was too challenging to navigate off the trails because of the growth and difficulty of navigating the path; but a lot of the illegal activity was happening off the trails and out of site. So, Forest Watcher was created with the intention of allowing people in the field without Internet connection to navigate to deforestation/fire alerts and monitor possible forest change.
  7. Gabby Forest Watcher is intended for many users. We have a lot of partners around the world in different contexts and with different capacities using the app, such as Ugandan forest rangers, indigenous communities in Colombia, civil society and police groups in Indonesia, and many others. It’s meant for a wide audience and is created in way that’s customizable so it can be adapted to particular needs.
