Abstract: Chapter 2.1 presents the state of the art for data and approaches to be used for monitoring forest area changes at the national scale in tropical countries using remote sensing imagery. It includes approaches and data for monitoring changes of forest areas (i.e. deforestation and reforestation) and for monitoring of changes within forest land (i.e. forest land remaining forests land, e.g. degradation). It includes general recommendations (e.g. for establishing historical reference scenarios) and detailed recommended steps for monitoring changes of forest areas or in forest areas.
