内容 研究概要:The paper presents a synopsis of Land Cover Assessment and Monitoring Project of UNEP Environment Assessment Programme for the Asia and Pacific. The project, covers eleven countries in the region and is expanding every year, utilizes remote sensing and GIS techniques to assess and monitor land cover status of each country on a regular basis. The broad goal of the project is to assess the present status of major land cover types of target countries using NOAA AVHRR 1 Km resolution satellite data incorporating secondary information within GIS environment. The principal purpose is to assess and monitor the land cover status of these countries in a near real time basis. It also aims to develop a methodology, strengthen the capacity of the government, train the personnel and ultimately hand over the technique to the respective countries. In the long run, it is expected that the target countries will do the similar exercise as a part of their regular land cover assessment and monitoring exercise. The role of UNEP/EAP-AP will then be to compile the data for macro analysis and reporting at the regional scale, provide technical and financial assistance and information transmission from national to regional to global and vice versa. Another aspect of the study is to identify "hot spot" (i.e. areas undergoing major land cover transformations) areas and investigate in detail, using high resolution satellite data supplemented by field data collection.
