Enhancement And Management Of Forest And Biodiversity Information Base

To safeguard forest and biodiversity resources through scientific and systematic planning, accurate land-based spatial information needs to be collected and assembled for utilization. Detailed topographical maps with altitudinal relief will be prepared, and standard survey techniques for biodiversity surveys and forest resource assessment will be applied to develop baseline information.

The impacts generated by the implementation of the management plans on the natural and socioeconomic conditions of the state can only be monitored and evaluated accurately by employing a scientific information base.

The accurate assessment of the impacts of any intervention is the key to sustainable management of forest and biodiversity resources. The outputs of this subcomponent include the followings.
1) updated topographical and land use maps and remote sensing information for planning; 
2) completed state-wide forestry and biodiversity surveys; and 
3) compiled data on the current status of grazing and global warming, and a strategy for climate change mitigation and adaptation in the alpine ecosystem, where climate change impacts have been observed early on.
