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 loss data of Sarlahi, Nepal between 2010 and 2013 has been developed using LandSat 8 data in a semi-automated manner as part of the forest cover monitoring system.
