Small-scale deforestation monitoring in Juma REDD project

In this presentation, Florian Reimer from South Pole Carbon compared techniques for monitoring small-scale deforestation in Juma reserve, exploring three classification methods: PRODES, CLASlite and ImageSVM. He found that using one model over another could avoid underdetection worth roughly US$1 million over four years, a compelling argument for careful selection of techniques depending on the characteristics of the region.
