Forest degradation in Cambodia: An assessment of monitoring options in the central cardamom protected forest

To assess monitoring options in the CCPF, a conceptual framework was developed, which includes three steps: 1) define biomass reference for monitoring in each forest strata of interest, 2) identify and assess the scale and intensity of forest degradation drivers, and 3) identify and assess monitoring approaches based on defined biomass change thresholds. We evaluated three main approaches as monitoring options including: ground‐based field measurements, remotely sensed imagery, and predictive modelling.
