Forests in Indonesia and Malaysia are rapidly disappearing in favour of palm oil plantations. To prevent illegal deforestation, Wageningen scientists are developing a self-learning computer system. This system analyses radar-satellite images and raises a red flag when parts of forests disappear. Governments and companies can then go to the location, check the report and deal with potential offenders. Nature organisations can also use the image analyses for monitoring. Who do you think should be responsible for making sure palm oil is produced in a sustainable manner?
