Abstract

Land cover change, especially deforestation, is a priority issue for policymakers at the local, national and international scale. Deforestation's contribution of up to 20% of global green-house gas emissions is already well known; the loss of biodiversity from land conversion is also well established [7, 13]. Policymakers at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change negotiations are addressing land use change by developing a framework for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD). In parallel, a number of technical groups have been working to identify strategies for reliably monitoring, reporting and verifying land use change and emissions [3, 2].
