Ecosystems provide a network of services to communities that help sustain livelihoods. Integration of earth observation data with GIS makes it possible to quantify the supplies and demands of ecosystem services and provide reliable data for

This research study developed methodologies for forest AGB estimation in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using optical high-resolution (WorldView, GeoEye) and SAR (ALOS-1/2 PALSAR) remote-sensing data coupled with field measurements...

The study of forest above-ground biomass (AGB) for estimating the carbon stock in each tree is important, as it is well established that the emission of carbon is the largest factor affecting today’s climate.

Biomass experts meet in Kathmandu

Using spaceborne SAR in synergy with other methods for forest above-ground biomass assessment in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) Region

Training Course: Deforestation and Forest Degradation Mapping and Monitoring Using Multi-Sale Geo-spatial Methods in the Context of REDD+ Initiatives

biomass is the sum of the above ground living organic material contained in trees, which is expressed as dry weight per unit area. Forest carbon trading has gained attention in recent years, for which practical methods for estimating forest

The performance-based climate mitigation framework REDD+ encourages the reduction of emissions related to deforestation and forest degradation, and removals through enhanced forest carbon stocks and improved forest management. These activities
