REDD-PAC: REDD+ Policy Assessment Center

The REDD-PAC project aims at developing technical know-how and capacity in designing efficient, effective and environmentally relevant REDD+ strategies and land use policies. The project was funded by Germany's International Climate Initiative and run from November 2011 to May 2016.

Main Results of the REDD-PAC Project

GLOBIOM-Brazil land use and land cover (LUCC) database

We have produced a new land cover map for Brazil for years 2000 and 2010, based on a best combination of existing sources. A preview of some of the available datasets can be visualised below. The full content of the datasets is available as a WFS (Web Feature Service) in the following address (no password required):

http://terrabrasilis.info/redd-pac/wfs

The spatial datasets can be accessed using open source GIS software such as QGIS. General introductory tutorials to QGIS have been prepared by UNEP-WCMC and a video on the use of WFS in QGIS is available here.The detailed description of the data in the WFS server is available in this technical report.
