Forest cover in Cambodia (2015-2021)

Through the implementation of USAID's Supporting Forests and Biodiversity (USAID SFB) ensuring ecological stability and biological productivity for landscape management and conservation policy, along with other stakeholders in Cambodia, the effective biodiversity and related conservation projects over large areas in Cambodia context were required insight's reports so as to have been developed Biophysical M&E Dashboard tool by SERVIR-Mekong, monitoring the performance of landscape-scale efforts and biophysical conditions on the ground. In this tool development, the input data are opened and available data on the Google Earth Engine (GEE), including Enhanced Vegetation Index from MODIS (MOD13Q1), tree canopy cover and tree canopy height to characterize forest extent and change from the Global Land Analysis & Discovery of University of Maryland (GLAD/UMD) team for the Mekong region, forest alert from GLAD Alert product from UMD and SAR Alert System (SARAS), forest fire from the Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS), and the Cambodia national Land Cover times series (2000-2021) through a collaborative effort of SERVIR-Mekong using the Regional Land Cover Monitoring.

This dataset section focuses on Cambodia's annual forest cover. The quantitative data about the area of forest cover is derived from the tool and compiled to be available to download from 2015 to 2021 for purposes.
