Inventory of volume and biomass tree allometric models for Southeast Asia: 2018 update

uploaded by Maryia Kukharava

The objective of this report is to provide an update of the GlobAllomeTree database with relevant tree allometric models for seven Southeast Asian countries - Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. Models are obtained from both peer-reviewed scientific literature and national technical reports and validated using methods previously described by Birigazzi et al., (2015) through the Fantallometrik tool.
This report is part of the MRV series of allometric equation database reports of the UN-REDD Programme, together with those for Cambodia (Sarin et al., 2012), Viet Nam (Inoguchi et al., 2013), the United Republic of Tanzania (Vyamana and Sola, 2013), The Pacific (Poultouchidou, Monnier and Birigazzi, 2013), North America (Birigazzi et al., 2013), and Bangladesh (Akhter, Hossain and Birigazzi, 2013), South Asia (Sandeep et al., 2014) and China (Cheng, Gamarra and Birigazzi, 2014).

Peatlands – guidance for climate change mitigation by conservation, rehabilitation and sustainable use

uploaded by Adam Gerrand

This publication provides information on management and finance options to achieve emissions reductions and enhance other vital ecosystem services from peatlands.

Peatlands drainage and peat fires are responsible for almost one-quarter of carbon emissions from the land use sector. This report is a good handbook for policy makers, technical audiences and others interested in peatlands. A decision support tree guides through opportunities for both cultivated and uncultivated peatlands. Methodologies and data available for quantifying GHG emissions from peatlands and organic soils are summarized and practical solutions are given concerning measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) and accounting. Country-specific case studies illustrate the problems, solutions and opportunities of peatland management. Feedbackor input to this first edition is very welcome!

G. P. Asner 2009. Integrated Satellite and Airborne Mapping Approaches, Environment Research Letters

uploaded by Tim Clairs

Large-scale carbon mapping is needed to support the UNFCCC program to reduce deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). Managers of forested land can potentially increase their carbon credits via detailed monitoring of forest cover, loss and gain (hectares), and periodic estimates of changes in forest carbon density (tons/ha). Satellites provide an opportunity to monitor changes in forest carbon caused by deforestation and degradation, but only after initial carbon densities have been assessed. New airborne approaches, especially light detection and ranging (LiDAR), provide a means to estimate forest carbon density over large areas, which greatly assists in the development of practical baselines. Here I present an integrated satellite–airborne mapping approach that supports high-resolution carbon stock assessment and monitoring in tropical forest regions. The approach yields a spatially resolved, regional state-of-the-forest carbon baseline, followed by high-resolution monitoring of forest cover and disturbance to
estimate carbon emissions. Rapid advances and decreasing costs in the satellite and airborne mapping sectors are already making high-resolution carbon stock and emissions assessments viable anywhere in the world.

An assessment of monitoring requirements and costs of Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation

uploaded by Estelle Fach

 

In this article we assess the costs of monitoring REDD based on available technologies and requirements associated with key elements of REDD policy.

 

We find that the design of a REDD policy framework (and specifically its rules) can have a significant impact on monitoring costs. Costs may vary from 0.5 to 550 US$ per square kilometre depending on the required precision of carbon stock and area change detection. Moreover, they follow economies of scale, i.e. single country or project solutions will face relatively higher monitoring costs.Although monitoring costs are relatively small compared to other cost items within a REDD system, they should be shared not only among countries but also among sectors, because an integrated monitoring system would have multiple benefits for non-REDD management. Overcoming initialization costs and unequal access to monitoring technologies is crucial for implementation of an integrated monitoring system, and demands for international cooperation.
