Detecting and mapping forest degradation at country level is challenging – especially in cloudy countries! Over several years the Guyana Forestry Commission, supported by Indufor and Durham University have developed a novel method that uses sample-based approach to quantify the area of change due to degradation. These results are supporting Guyana to report countrywide annual estimates of degradation.
This is one of many components of the national monitoring programme in Guyana, as discussed in the original blog post: Guyana Completes 10 Years Of Forest Change Monitoring. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ui67Sqey8N8
