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 Swath, Pakistan for 2013 has been developed using LandSat 8 data in a semi-automated manner as part of the forest cover monitoring system.
