Biomass experts meet in Kathmandu
The objective of the capacity building and training programme is to enhance and strengthen the capacities of forest institutions in Nepal in utilising geo-information, and applying spatial tools and techniques to support planning and decision-making
Maximum Canopy Height and Carbon Stocks raster data layers. In addition they can visualize VDC level available biomass, demand for biomass and balance
Bhutan is a landlocked kingdom characterised by high mountainous 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
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
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
Learning on REDD+ in South Asia
through enhanced forest carbon stocks and improved forest management. These activities should
The REDD+ initiative has been working to build the capacities of resource persons in the area, and the newly formed REDD+ working group. It works with the Federation of Community Forestry Users, Nepal (FECOFUN), ICIMOD, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft
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.
Resilient forest dependent communities need supportive government policies and strengthened institutions
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...
