Training Workshop on High-Resolution Mapping of Sabah’s Forest Carbon

The Sabah Forestry Department, in collaboration with the BALI project (Biodiversity and Land-use Impacts on tropical ecosystem functioning) of the Human Modified Tropical Forests (HMTF) programme and South East Asia Rainforest Partnership (SEARRP) and with support of the EU funded programme ‘Tackling Climate Change through Sustainable Forest management and Community Development’ held a training day on ‘High Resolution Mapping of Sabah’s Forest Carbon’ to develop capacity in Carbon Stock Assessment.  The meeting included a discussion and practical session by Prof. David Coomes from the University of Cambridge on the science behind the Sabah Carbon map with suggestions and recommendations on how to update the map and measure forest recovery in the future.
