REDD Sub-national MRV Activities in Bolivia

  1. 1. Methods for Biomass Estimation and Forest-Cover Mapping in the Tropics Kigali, Rwanda. June 20, 2011REDD Sub-national MRV Activities in Bolivia Eric Armijo
  2. 2. FAN´S EXPERIENCE IN THE CLIMATE DOMAIN Noel Kempff Climate Action Project First sub-national REDD project in the world certified using CDM State-Level Climate Adaptation Program Piloting adaptation schemes in biodiversity conservation, watershed management and food securityBolivia-Cameroon:South-South cooperation in REDDTraining in IPCC compliant biomass measurementschemes, spatial and economic modeling at national scale Indigenous REDD Program in the Bolivian Amazon
  3. 3. BOLIVIAArea: 1,098,581 Km2Population: ~10 Mill. High biodiversity ~ 50% forest cover Deforestation: ~300,000 Ha/year
  4. 4. Indigenous REDD Program in the Bolivian Amazon Size: ~ 3.8 Million Ha. 160,000 inhabitants 4 indigenous territories Forest cover (2008): ~2.7 Million Ha. (71,9 %) Deforestation: 9,800 Ha/yr
  5. 5. REDD BASELINE:DEFORESTATION PAST AND FUTURE TRAJECTORIES
  6. 6. MAIN DRIVERS AND AGENTS OF DEFORESTATION Slash-and-burnCattle ranching (pastures) Small-scale agriculture ~ 20 - 50 Ha. ~ 1 - 5 Ha. Road improvement
  7. 7. FOREST CHANGE DETECTION Forest Savanna Water Deforestation Observed deforestation (AREA Ha.)250,000200,000150,000100,000 50,000 0 1991 0 5 2001 10 2005 15 2008 20
  8. 8. SPATIALLY-EXPLICIT MODELING “Deforestation risk” Deforestation predictors Spatial transition probabilityLand use Map of 1991 changes & 2005
  9. 9. PROJECTING FUTURE DEFORESTATION SCENARIOS2008 2020 forest deforestation Dinamica EGO
  10. 10. REDD BASELINE:FOREST DEGRADATION PATTERNS
  11. 11. Steps to determine anthropogenic degradation emissions 1. Build relevant activity data on area change: disturbance maps (CLASLite™ or NDFI) 2. Extract degraded areas of disturbance maps 3. Factor out non-anthropogenic degradation 4. Determine emission factors for each forest stratum
  12. 12. FOREST DISTURBANCE DETECTION Normalized Difference Fraction CLASLiteIndex – NDFI (Souza et al 2005) (Asner et al 2009)
  13. 13. FOREST DEGRADATION EXTRACTION deforested– degraded – intacttC/hadeforestation degradation intact forest
  14. 14. FOREST DEGRADATION EXTRACTION Threshold definition Using high- resolution (2.5m CBERS HRC & SPOT ) and field data
  15. 15. FACTORING OUT NON-ANTROPOGENIC DEGRADATION Forest Flooding Unplanned degradation “Natural” forest degradationDeforestation Burned Areas
  16. 16. REDD BASELINE:BIOMASS ESTIMATION
  17. 17. FOREST STRATIFICATION AND PLOT DEFINITION• Follow IPCC guidelinesIntact forest• 30 biomass plots• 4 forest types sampled• Average 274 tC/HaDegraded forest• 18 biomass plots• Average 200 tC/Ha
