Forest loss of Bandarban, Bangladesh between 2013 and 2014

The past few decades have seen high levels of deforestation and forest degradation in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region. In this context, under SERVIR Himalaya programme, ICIMOD has developed forest cover monitoring system to identify forest change hotspot areas which need critical forest management attention in four pilot areas. This forest cover data of Bandarban, Bangladesh between 2013 and 2014 has been developed using LandSat 8 data in a semi-automated manner as part of the forest cover monitoring system.
