Indonesia’s National Carbon Accounting System (INCAS) has been designed to meet national and international policy requirements. It is building a system for comprehensive monitoring of land use changes, and estimation of land-based greenhouse gas emissions. Indonesia’s forests are of global significance, and tropical forests are a major focus of initiatives such as REDD+. The INCAS remote sensing program is producing spatially-detailed annual wall-to-wall monitoring of forest cover changes from time series Landsat imagery for Indonesia.
