The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
An innovative new tool allows countries to continue to track, monitor, and improve the health of freshwater ecosystems, despite limited movement during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Freshwater Ecosystems Explorer is a free and easy-to-use data platform providing up-to-date, high-resolution geospatial data showing the extent to which freshwater ecosystems change over time. It was developed through a partnership between the JRC, the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and Google.
