Analysis of the raw data of sample plots in NFIMAP Cycle IV (English version)
This report has been produced by the USAID-funded Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (USAID LEAF) program in its support for the development of the Lam Dong Provincial REDD+ Action Plan (PRAP). The report details the results of an analysis of the raw data of primary sample plots (PSPs) collected during Cycle IV of the National Forest Inventory and Monitoring Programme (NFIMAP) in Lam Dong, which was conducted in 2010 to support GHG emission factor estimations (EFs). It is one of five technical reports that have been developed to help the Lam Dong Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) in defining an appropriate Forest Reference Level FRL for the Province from which its policies and measures introduced to reduce emissions and increase greenhouse gas (GHG) removals from the forestry sector can be measured against. These studies will strongly support the on-going development of the Lam Dong PRAP.
