Details for Historical and Projected Deforestation Rates 1990 – 2020 for Santo Island, Vanuatu

PropertyValue
Name:Historical and Projected Deforestation Rates 1990 – 2020 for Santo Island, Vanuatu
Description:

The report describes the processing of historical remote sensing data and modelling of expected land use in the next decade. Results show a very low deforestation rates of 0.3 % between 1990 and 2010, and a predicted 0.6 % between 2010 and 2020. This supports the assumption that forest degradation should become the focus of further activities towards developing a Reference Emission Level for forests in Vanuatu.
