Afforestation programs are taken up under Forest Carbon/ REDD+ and several other programs to address forest degradation and climate change. Effective implementation of such programs largely depends on monitoring of plantation survival post intervention and tracking periodic change in forest cover and biomass in both intervened and control area.
SPARC has developed and implemented methodologies for afforestation impact assessment in the JICA assisted Odisha Forestry Sector Development Project where precisely surveyed boundaries of the intervened forest areas were periodically analysed using temporal satellite images to record change in forest cover.
