Locations reported by various studies as undergoing high rates of land cover change in the past few decades

Year: 2007 Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, Emmanuelle Bournay, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
In the case of forest cover change, the studies refer to the period 1980–2000 and are based on national statistics, remote sensing, and to a limited degree expert opinion. In the case of land cover change resulting from degradation in drylands (desertification), the period is unspecified but inferred to be within the last half-century, and the major study was entirely based on expert opinion, with associated low certainty.
