Monitoring activities of deforestation and forest degradation in REDD+ project sites: Recommendations for the use of remote sensing on measurement of forest cover change

Monitoring activities of deforestation and forest degradation in REDD+ project sites: Recommendations for the use of remote sensing on measurement of forest cover change

The international community recognizes reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) and increasing forest carbon stocks as a critical component of national and international strategies for mitigating climate change. To support the endeavour of producing a post-2012 climate agreement, CIFOR is conducting a four-year global comparative research project on first-generation REDD project sites and national REDD initiatives in selected countries across Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
