The carbon market represents a lifeline for poor families that have struggled through more than a decade of war in the DRC. If we can tie reducing greenhouse gasses to moving people out of abject poverty, we will really have achieved something, says Frank Merry, economist and co-author of the report on the DRC.

In New Eyes in the Sky: Cloud-Free Tropical Forest Monitoring for REDD with the Japanese Advanced Land Observation Satellite (ALOS), the WHRC, in collaboration with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency ( JAXA) and the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC), presents startling results of the new ALOS radar sensor. From ALOS, high-resolution (20 m ) mosaics of radar images can be assembled for very large areas of forests anywhere in the world. Two pilot project areas include a 400,000 km2-region in the southeastern Amazon (the Xingu River headwaters, 7 times the size of Costa Rica), and the 7,500 km2 island of Bali. These cloud-free mosaics were assembled with great speed because of the excellent quality of the images. ALOS data are being gathered by JAXA for all of the forests of the world at least three times each year, providing an important new tool for tracking the state of tropical nations forests.

Josef Kellndorfer, who is leading the WHRCs work with ALOS, says, "JAXA has launched an amazing sensor which exhibits unprecedented geometric and radiometric accuracies. Thanks to a dedicated observation strategy, this allows us to obtain wall-to-wall, high-resolution, and cloud-free radar observations of tropical forests several times per year for years to come. With similar instruments planned for launch during the next couple of years by space agencies in Japan, Europe, Germany, Italy, and the U.S., this marks a new era in remote sensing of natural resources."

Finally, the fourth Center study Ready for REDD" A preliminary assessment of global forested land suitability for agriculture desc
