dc.description.abstractThis chapter covers the recent developments undertaken by JRC for estimating tropical deforestation from Earth observation data. For the UNFCCC process it is important to tackle the technical issues surrounding the ability to monitor and report greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation in developing countries. Remotely-sensed data are crucial to such efforts. Recent developments in monitoring of tropical forests from Earth observation can contribute to reducing the uncertainties in estimates of carbon emissions from deforestation. Key requirements for implementing future monitoring programs are international commitment of resources to ensure regular pan-tropical coverage by satellite remote sensing imagery at a sufficient level of detail, access to such data at low-cost, and consensus protocols for satellite imagery analysis.en_GB
