Conversion of forests to different land uses

Year: 2011 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Using satellite images, land use changes were determined at Batang Toru (2001-2009) and Tripa (2001-2009) to calculate overall CO2 emissions. Deforestation in both areas led to different land use transitions, with the predominant land use in Batang Toru after deforestation being disturbed forest and in Tripa, oil palm plantations.
