Using the Land Degradation Surveillance Framework to assess land health in Rwanda

Using the Land Degradation Surveillance Framework to assess land health in Rwanda

The Land Degradation Surveillance Framework methodology, developed by World Agroforestry, is one of the largest land-health databases in the world, providing a field protocol for measuring indicators of the ‘health’ of an ecosystem, including vegetation cover, structure and floristic composition, historic land use, land degradation, soil characteristics, including soil organic carbon stocks for assessing mitigation potential and infiltration capacity, as well as providing a monitoring framework to detect changes over time.
