Decision Support Tools as well as most of the SERVIR-Mekong project activities and published content are classified within one or more project service areas. On this page, you’ll find content that is specific to Land Cover, Land Use Change and Ecosystems.
The land cover, land use and ecosystems thematic service area focuses on sustainable landscapes through natural capital accounting and ecosystem services. Ecosystem services are critically dependent on natural capital such as the quality of soils, organic and nutrient contents, topography, rainfall, and land cover among other factors. SERVIR-Mekong is working on a regional land cover map. Another key consideration in this service area is low carbon impact for resilient agriculture and development. SERVIR-Mekong aligns closely with SilvaCarbon activities to assist countries to monitor their forest and terrestrial carbon.
