Forest cover trends in the Northern Plains of Cambodia 2002-2010

We present results of an analysis of forest cover trends in the Northern Plains landscape in Cambodia from 2002 to 2010. This report will be used to inform development of a REDD project although the impact of this report will be influenced by the REDD methodology selected. The study focuses on two protected areas, a logging concession and an unzoned area in Preah Vihear province (together referred to as the CALM landscape), all of which have been under conservation management since 2002 with more intensive management since 2006. The study also focuses on six adjacent sectors (together referred to as the Buffer Area), which are not managed intensively for conservation. Satellite imagery was compiled from four points in time (2002, 2006, 2009 and 2010) to assess forest cover at each time period.
