Green Forest

Climate Change

Assessing the forest ecosystems

The main focus of the project is to investigate the vulnerability of the forests from a variety of perspectives. 

Prediction of climate driven changes in vegetation distribution

Sensitivity analysis

Remote sensing & GIS technologies for risk assessment

Understanding grazing pressure and herbivore population of a forest area

Collection of past fire history of an area

Understanding the dependence of rural and indigenous communities on forest

Estimating fuel load composition

Identifying forest fragmentation rate

The key outcomes of this work include, effective management of forest landscapes, maintenance of forest health and biodiversity, better understanding of projected impacts of forest fire, decreased negative impacts, and reduced intensity of fire
