of emissions related to deforestation and forest degradation, and removals through enhanced forest carbon stocks and improved forest management. These activities should
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.
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...
Using spaceborne SAR in synergy with other methods for forest above-ground biomass assessment in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) Region
International Expert Group Meeting on “Multi scale Forest Biomass Assessment and Monitoring of Hindu Kush Himalayan Region”
The SERVIR-Himalaya Small Grants Programme has spurred innovative ways to help decision makers do everything, from expanding banana production to monitoring forest biomass from the sky.
To address rural energy problems, twenty seven villagers from Kyang Taung, Kyang Nur, Pantin, Thyetpin, Antpet and Zeyar, Myanmar were trained to make bio-briquettes using unwanted biomass such as forest weeds, pine needles and bamboo branches.
More than a hundred local community members participated in a training workshop in late January to learn about management of invasive alien plant species to make bio-briquettes and bio-composting. Participants ranged from students from different
terrain and extensive forest cover. Over seventy percent of the country is covered in relatively well-preserved forest and is one of the ‘biodiversity hotspots’ of the world consisting
the carbon in their forests, the project provides valuable global learning on how to build the capacity of local stakeholders in implementing carbon offset
Training Course: Deforestation and forest Degradation Mapping and Monitoring Using Multi-Sale Geo-spatial Methods in the Context of REDD+ Initiatives
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
Workshop on Automated Forest Cover Monitoring in the HKH in collaboration with Global Forest Watch
Regional partners trained on applying remote sensing technology to monitor and map deforestation and forest degradation
to view, besides others, biomass products such as Above Ground biomass, Maximum Canopy Height and Carbon Stocks raster data layers. In addition they can visualize VDC level available biomass, demand for biomass and balance
The training will enhance country level capacity for the development of future national forest monitoring systems for REDD in Myanmar.
emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) is an international climate policy instrument that is expected to tap into the large mitigation potential for conservation and better management of the world’s forests through
