Uncertainty in tropical landscapes

Watch this Discussion Forum on the second day of the Global Landscapes Forum 2015, in Paris, France alongside COP21. Land use change, deforestation and agricultural production represent a fourth of global GHG-emissions, and a third of achievable global mitigation by 2030. This session discusses how remote sensing and land use modeling can help REDD+ countries set their emission targets, present statistically convincing results and assess the impact of different policy options on land use change. Land use models can support countries in taking account of agricultural and other demands for land for achieving their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC’s).
