Project Achievements:
► Design of an audited and compliant IPCC regional MRV REDD+ document for remote sensing based Activity Data (AD) assessment, biomass inventory, and Emission Factor (EF) assessment
► Estimating Forest Cover and Change:
- Establishment of a national methodology for wall-to-wall mapping of historical deforestation in the REDD+ process for 1990-2000-2010
- Earth Observation (EO) based assessment of forest degradation
► Capacity Building and Technology Transfer:
- Training on EO-based monitoring of forest cover change
(deforestation and degradation mapping)
- Training on terrestrial inventory for REDD
- Emission Accounting
► Emission Accounting:
- Provision of emission estimates (CO2) based on the activity
data and biomass data for pilot sites
