Abstract

Forests are important carbon pools that are facing many man-made threats such as poverty, agricultural expansion, mismanagement, illegal logging, and many other factors. Conservation International (CI) has been working on Priceless Planet Coalition Monitoring Framework for forest restoration. On a global scale, our project researches the options available for improving CI’s forest biomass monitoring using remote sensing and gives recommendations to CI’s Restoration Science Team about the most strategic changes. We use geospatial analysis to estimate current environmental conditions and biomass potential for 3 specific sites. On a regional scale, we synthesize information on coffee agroforestry systems as a restoration method in the Oaxaca-Chiapas region in Mexico, make experimental designs for testing out coffee renovation cycles, and identify possible sites that are ideal to conduct the experiments.
