Summary

The European Union has developed a set of deforestation satellite maps. They include a global map of forest cover for the year 2020; and a global map of forest cover changes 2016–2022, along with the reasons for the changes. These maps may help operators to assess deforestation risk under the EU Deforestation Regulation 2023/1115. They also map data on the production and trade of commodities affected by the EU Deforestation Regulation (that is, products related to cattle, cocoa, coffee, palm oil, soybeans, rubber, and timber).
