South America

This research aims to quantify proximate drivers of deforestation, their spatiotemporal dynamics and related carbon losses in South America at continental and national scales using a comprehensive, systematic remote sensing analysis. This new dataset will provide insight into complex deforestation pathways and be a valuable source of information for international climate change mitigation and REDD+
monitoring strategies.
