The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (USAID LEAF) is a five-year project that promotes regional collaboration on forest management to avoid deforestation and forest degradation. Forests in Asia and the Pacific make a significant contribution to reducing the negative effects of climate change since forests are one of nature’s most efficient ways of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it. They also are an important source of income and livelihoods, but are often overused for agriculture, infrastructure and other uses.

SHARING INNOVATIVE FOREST MANAGEMENT TOOLS

June 10, 2015

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), is funding SERVIR Mekong, a five-year (2014-2019) geospatial data for development project. SERVIR Mekong equips governments, regional institutions and other key stakeholders in the Lower Mekong countries to employ publicly-available satellite imagery and geospatial technologies such as mapping and analysis software. This information is essential for improving environmental management and building greater resilience to the negative effects of climate change.

SERVIR Mekong is one of four SERVIR hubs currently in operation across the developing world. Each hub strengthens a locally-based and regionally-focused institution to serve as a sustainable regional service provider of data, analytics, training and best practices for improved decision-making.
