USAID LEAF Accuracy Assessment for Forest and Land Use Maps (English version)
This report has been produced by the USAID-funded Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (USAID LEAF) program in its support for the development of the Lam Dong Provincial REDD+ Action Plan (PRAP). It is one of five technical reports that have been developed to help the Lam Dong Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) in defining an appropriate Forest Reference Level for the Province from which its policies and measures introduced to reduce emissions and increase greenhouse gas (GHG) removals from the forestry sector can be measured against. Specifically, the report details the methodology and results of activities undertaken to verify the accuracy of historical forest and land use maps of Lam Dong from 1990 to 2010.
