    Technical guide for the Adaptation, Biodiversity and Carbon Mapping Tool
    ABC-Map
    2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    ABC-Map was designed with the specific objective of holistically assessing the environmental impacts of national policies, plans and investments in the agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU) sector through Google Earth-based satellite imagery. ABC-Map helps to develop synergies and trade-offs between climate, biodiversity and land restoration actions. The Adaptation section helps to understand exposure to climate change risks and to assess climate change over time in a given area. It includes a climate and geophysical profile with, for example, information on temperature and precipitation trends over the past 40 years. The Biodiversity section covers a series of indicators that are intended to complement each other and provide a more comprehensive view of pressures and impacts on biodiversity. These indicators are average species abundance, land use change in protected areas and key biodiversity areas, and natural capital. The Carbon section aims to account for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the AFOLU sector and work towards their reduction. The Carbon section is similar to the Nationally Determined Contributions Expert Tool (NEXT), it takes into account the evolution of the carbon stock, the carbon balance and the social value of carbon. The overall objective of this technical manual is to provide users with (i) the detailed structure of ABC-Map, (ii) its methodological background, and (iii) the different data and factors used such as emission factors and default carbon stock values, reference values from ESVD, GLOBIO, climate and geophysical datasets among others.

    ABC-Map 2023
    Also available in:

    ABC-Map a été conçu dans le but spécifique d'évaluer de manière holistique les impacts environnementaux des politiques, plans et investissements nationaux dans le secteur de l'agriculture, de la sylviculture et des autres utilisations des terres (AFOLU) à l'aide d'images satellite basées sur Google Earth. ABC-Map aide à développer des synergies et faire des arbitrages entre les actions climatiques, la biodiversité et les actions de restauration des terres.   La section sur l'adaptation permet de comprendre l'exposition aux risques liés au changement climatique et d'évaluer le changement climatique au fil du temps dans une zone donnée. La section sur la biodiversité couvre une série d'indicateurs destinés à se compléter mutuellement et à fournir une vision plus complète des pressions et des impacts sur la biodiversité. La section sur le carbone vise à rendre compte des émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES) dans le secteur des AFOLU et à œuvrer en faveur de leur réduction. L'objectif global de ce dépliant est d'informer les lecteurs (i) sur ce qu'est ABC-Map, (ii) sur sa structure, et (iii) sur les partenaires d'ABC-Map.

    Africa Open Data for Environment, Agriculture and Land (DEAL) and Africa’s Great Green Wall
    Technical land use report
    2022
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Africa Open DEAL and Africa’s Great Green Wall initiative is a first-of-its-kind collection of accurate, comprehensive, and harmonized African land use and land use change data. It provides a detailed panorama of land use and change across the entire continent and countries, captured through more than 300 000 sampling points taken from very high-resolution satellite imagery using FAO’s Collect Earth tools. This land report is a collective effort of more than 350 African experts. Using maps and statistics generated from the assessments, the report elaborates future prospects of land use change in a comprehensive and accessible format. Key findings indicate that land restoration for livelihoods, biodiversity and carbon capture is achievable in Africa, in view of multiple large-scale initiatives and countries’ commitments, including restoration targets of 100 million ha for GGW-Sahel, 100 million ha for the AFR100, both by 2030, and another 200 million ha for the Pan-African Agenda on Ecosystem Restoration. Successfully restored lands in the Sahel under GGW would have a profound positive effect on the climate of the whole region, potentially doubling the amount of rainfall or decreasing summer temperatures throughout much of Nnorthern Africa and as far as the Mediterranean. FAO and the AUC remain committed to working with member countries, African institutions and partners to leverage digital technologies to fast-track data on land use change and restoration efforts on the continent. Africa Open DEAL data are embedded within FAO’s Hand-in-Hand Initiative geo-spatial platform and are accessible to anyone through EarthMap.org.
