Building a Dashboard to Monitor, Evaluate and Report Landscape Improvements in Cambodia
The service, Building a Dashboard to Monitor, Evaluate and Report Landscape Improvements in Cambodia, addresses the demand from USAID/Cambodia to monitor and evaluate projects that target biophysical improvement and enhance biodiversity conservation on the ground. The service dashboard offers a wide range of biophysical parameters such as number of hectares of forest cover change in significant areas showing improved biophysical conditions as the result of project assistance; and information on forest alerts, forest fire hotspots and land cover change by year. Users can choose and review the changes to a selected area, over a certain time period. Information from this service could help NGO and conservation projects in Cambodia monitor the improvement of biophysical conditions and the achievement of sustainable landscape management. This service can be replicated by other USAID Missions as well as other development partners.
Ensuring ecological stability and biological productivity over large areas is critical for landscape management and conservation. USAID/Cambodia, along with other stakeholders require insights on the effectiveness of biodiversity and conservation-related project interventions during a project’s life cycle. To monitor and evaluate projects that target biophysical improvement and enhance on-the-ground biodiversity conservation, a remote-sensing based platform is needed. This tool is being developed based on a request from USAID/Cambodia to support USAID-funded biodiversity and conservation projects.
