Final Report - SUN (Tools for management and sustainable use of natural vegetation in West Africa)

Project ID: 31685
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report for the SUN project which aimed to develop new, practical management tools and concrete management actions for improved sustainable use of natural vegetation by combining scientific vegetation data, remote sensing and socio-economic information with local people's knowledge and needs. The report covers the actions and the achievements made by the project. As part of the project, maps of vegetation patterns and land use units have been prepared for the project core areas. Extensive vegetation inventories from land use areas and protected areas have been conducted and data are stored in a vegetation database and used for modelling of phytodiversity patterns in relation to human impact.
