Description

Logging roads are often a first step to deforestation and forest degradation, but they are generally remote and sporadically used, making them difficult to monitor. The [Logging Roads](http://loggingroads.org/) initiative, launched by [Moabi](http://moabi.org/) and Global Forest Watch, uses crowdsourcing and tools developed by [OpenStreetMap](http://openstreetmap.org/) and the [Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT)](https://hotosm.org/) to identify and monitor the spread of logging roads in the Congo Basin. Volunteers use satellite imagery to trace roads and identify the date the road appears.
