    Precipitation anomaly as an indicator for food security in eastern Bhutan (1984-2022) 2023

    No results found.

    Precipitation variation affects the food security of a region. To assess the food security, precipitation anomaly between two time periods (1981–2022 and 2018–2022) is measured from CHIRPS data for eastern Bhutan (1981–2022) in the context of GEF–8 projects. The main aim of the GEF–8 project is to transform cropland to improve the region's food security.

    Land cover as an indicator for food security in eastern Bhutan (2022) 2023

    Land cover data is fundamental to food security. Land cover information is required to monitor food security indicators, and provide information on access to water, cropping intensities and many others. Land cover for eastern Bhutan (2022) was obtained by training a machine learning model and classifying (Planet & Sentinel–1) imageries in GEE. The legend for Bhutan was obtained from ICIMOD (2010). The main aim of the GEF–8 project is to transform rice fields to improve the region’s food security.

    Temperature anomaly as an indicator for food security in eastern Bhutan (1981-2022) 2023
    Also available in:

    Temperature variation affects the food security of a region, in particular at rainfed croplands. To assess the food security, temperature anomaly between two time periods (1981-2022 and 2018-2022) is measured from ECMWF data for eastern Bhutan (1981-2021) in the context of GEF–8 projects. The main aim of the GEF–8 project is to transform cropland to improve the region's food security.
