The conference included presentations of different projects developed during the year under the interinstitutional work of MINAM – CIAT. Among others field validation, website changes, improvements of the Terra-i tool, collaborations with other institutions and future developments.

Furthermore, specialists from the Directorate General of Land Management (DGOT) MINAM, showed how the data provided by the Terra-i tool have been used. An example was the use of alerts to focus activities of monitoring and control of illegal/ informal mining in Madre de Dios and Puno.

By statistical analysis of Terra-i data, the DGOT has a tool that allows to appreciate more clearly the effects of their actions on the territory. The statistics are also important for specialists from other directions, which are not familiar with spatial information. It facilitates them to understand the dynamics of vegetation  cover change at national level, which provides a more integrated work between institutions.

As part of the activities certificates of attendance and participation were given to 15 specialists of the MINAM. This group was present at the 4 workshops that were realized throughout the year on the use, scientific bases and applications of the Terra-i tool as early warning system to detect changes of land cover and land use.

The realization of these workshops is an important step for the MINAM specialists to begin processing the data locally. Also during the different sessions participants suggested improvements concerning the tool and the website of which some have been implemented.
