The 1st International Symposium on LAPAN-IPB Satellite for Food Security and Environmental Monitoring 2014 (LISAT-FSEM 2014) was held on 25-26 November 2014 at the IPB International Convention Center, Bogor, Indonesia. This symposium is focused on: (1) enhancing beneficial use of satellite technology in the fields of agriculture, forestry, climate change, and marine resources, in terms of food security, which is associated with the estimation of agricultural land and marine resource productivity as well as the system of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of the REDD+ program (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation Plus) and (2) to prepare and complete the processing chains of the existing environmental satellite data as well as the LISAT-data utilization from upstream to downstream of the selected locations in accordance with the focus study.

The symposium organizing committee has already received the total of 73 papers for both category of Oral and Poster Presentation, which come from various scientists and students from different institutions. These papers have been reviewed by the scientific committee of LISAT-FSEM. Regarding the peer review of scientific committee, 43 papers have been selected to be published in Procedia Environmental Sciences (Journal under Elsevier, ISSN: 1878-0296). , which mostly focused on enhancing the beneficial use of satellite technology in terms of food security in the fields of agriculture, forestry, climate change, and fisheries/marine resources.

Indeed, the result from this symposium will provide useful information from satellite technology in order to support the government’s programs for food security and environmental monitoring. Moreover, this symposium will be strengthened the collaboration between multi-institutions and developed a better atmosphere among the different research groups, either for basic research or technology developments.
