Improvement of REDD+ Implementation Using IC Technology
By Mitsubishi Research Institute
Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity
The REDD+ project activities are to be implemented in the project area with Ecological Restoration Concession (ERC), most of which is covered with natural forest. Activities for forest conservation, protecting endangered orangutan as a safeguard will be conducted. In forest areas surrounding the ERC area, many concessions for commercial logging have been sold. Therefore, risks for deforestation have been increased in the ERC area. By using IT devices (eg. NEC LifeTouch), forest & ecosystem management activities are to be supported in the project.
Draft JCM MethodologyIn general, satellite multi-spectrum data are applied for land classification analysis. In this FS, by applying high-resolution textural data, sparse discrimination analyses are conducted so that the accuracy of land classification can be improved.
Expected GHG Emission Reductions
533,000tCO2/yr← Based on the following baseline assumption
- Total carbon stock in the ERC: 12.5 MtC
- 35% loss due to the future deforestation
- 30 years of project duration
