The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (LEAF) programme, jointly implemented by Winrock International, SNV and Climate Focus, is happy to present the LEAF South and Southeast Asia REDD+ Atlas. The LEAF Atlas provides a standardised source of information for the larger South and Southeast Asia region by presenting a comprehensive collection of the most relevant, current and trusted datasets available to the public.
The Atlas includes maps and tables of a range of datasets relevant to REDD+ including forest cover, biomass carbon stocks, and carbon emissions from deforestation. In addition, data are provided for a series of associated land-based biophysical and socio-economic factors that can be used to understand past patterns of land cover and land use change. The Atlas is meant to serve as a resource to a range of stakeholders who are working with, or interested in, forestry, land use, and climate change in the region. The Atlas can be downloaded from here.
