Pressures on forests by anthropic actions of deforestation and forest degradation lead to the decrease of forest areas in many countries at the global scale, including these of Central Africa. These forest losses induce carbon release in the atmosphere enhancing the global warming. Remote Sensing/Earth observation is an appropriate solution to help monitoring the changes in forest at a national scale and to estimate the carbon loss resulting from these variations.
The REDDiness project aims to strengthen the national forest monitoring centers of Gabon and the Republic of Congo in their effort to implement the REDD+ mechanism by the concrete support of specific techniques in remote sensing and by capacity building. More specifically the project focuses on the monitoring of forest degradation, one of the major technical difficulties regarding REDD+.
REDDiness is a two-year project, supported by the European research program FP7 and is part of “Global Monitoring for Environment and Security” (GMES).
