Tropical forest cover is declining in many parts of the world.
This process is of global concern, as it is considered to be one of the main drivers of climate change.
The effects of climate change are threats to both present and future human generations.
But, these can be controlled, if and only if, there are adequate data to ensure effective planning, budgeting and implementation of climate policies.
Hence, radar remote sensing (RS) is useful to monitor forest coverage since the presence of clouds often limits a continuous and periodic monitoring by optical sensors.
In this book, radar RS technique was applied to map tropical forest degradation signs in a part of Africa, with a view as to contribute to the development of alternative monitoring strategies in support of the monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) framework of UN-REDD+.
Thus, the results in this book are useful to environmentalists, policy makers, regulatory agencies, natural resources managers, university lecturers, forestry students and NGOs.
Also, if you are one who is passionate about safeguarding the future of our children from the impacts of climate change; then this book might be of interest to you.
