Main goals

Assessment of the REDD+ potential of a forest in Côte d'Ivoire

Specific objectives

OS1. Establishing the Reference Emission Level
OS2. Establishment of 3 project scenarios, via the adaptation of the High Carbon Stocks (HCS) method

Results

Activities

A1. Forest/Non Forest cover maps for 2000 and 2015
A2. Land-use change map (i.e. deforestation) for the period 2000 – 2015 based on Landsat images (30 m of resolution
A3. Assessment of carbon compartments (Above-Ground Biomass, Below Ground biomass, litter and dead wood) based on available literature
A4. Forest Reference Emissions Level calculations for the next 20 years
A5. Establishment of 3 distinct project scenarios, via the adaptation of the High Carbon Stocks method to take into account the level of fragmentation of the forest considered
