Forest regeneration monitoring for improved water conservation and food production under a changing climate using UAVs and LiDAR in Africa
This project is to leverage UAVs and LiDAR technology for the comprehensive analysis of environmental factors, to advance forest regeneration monitoring efforts in Africa. This initiative seeks to establish a community-centered approach to forest management. Ecoresolve aims to provide technical expertise, educational assistance, monitoring and planting activities, capacity enhancement for artificial forest regeneration, and equipping individuals with tools to support sustained forest regrowth.
Ecoresolve aims to use remote sensing technology to evaluate the impact of regenerating forests on food production, and assess carbon sequestration levels while modeling future potential under different climate scenarios, ultimately leading to policy recommendations for sustainable management and ecosystem restoration.
The project will involve developing a remote sensing-based monitoring system for agroforest ecosystems to quantify forest changes in the regeneration zone, understand tree mortality drivers, and identify vulnerable areas, and suitable planting locations
Impact and results:
The implementation of remote sensing-based forest regeneration monitoring platforms in agroforest ecosystems will help in quantifying the forest gain and loss, identifying early-age tree mortality drivers, and locating the vulnerable areas for urgent attention and planting campaigns. This will enhance food security, and help achieve more sustainable forest management and climate resilience
