[extended] CONSULTANCY: open-source licencing of Real-Time Monitoring (RTM) source code 

In 2015, the Rainforest Foundation UK successfully developed and launched a ground-breaking new system (ForestLink) which enables communities anywhere in the world to capture and transmit accurately geo-referenced reports of forest illegalities to a central database in real-time, even from areas where there is no mobile phone or internet connectivity.

In light of past successes and in recognition of the multiple benefits and uses that ForestLink can provide that extend beyond RTM, RFUK is considering making the ForestLink source code open-source, either on a modular basis, or for the whole system.
