Time series showing deforestation and forest degradation in Vietnam over a period of eight years.
One of Earth’s largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions is deforestation and forest degradation. Planet Monitoring for REDD+ MRV provides an Earth observation-based monitoring program to help you assess and quantify change in forests from regional to national level.
REDD+ countries must produce a detailed assessment of forest change by monitoring land use, forest dynamics and land management practices on a regular basis. Planet’s high resolution imagery provides detail to identify different types of forest and features including narrow operational roads, small clear cuts or selective thinning.
- Identify forest disturbance at a level of detail not possible with Landsat or Sentinel-2 imagery
- Detect drivers of deforestation and forest degradation
- Improve your measuring and reporting activities with a reliable, cost-effective imaging solution that guarantees country coverage
