With the advent of high-spatial resolution (HSR) satellite imagery, urban land use/land cover (LULC) mapping has become one of the most popular applications in remote sensing. Due to the importance of context information (e.g., size/shape/texture) for classifying urban LULC features, Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) techniques are...
Working Paper
Although Japan and India have long considered the possibility of establishing the JCM as has been stipulated in joint statements between these two countries, an official bilateral document to start the JCM has not yet been signed. The JCM is one of the market-based mechanisms which involves Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMOs)...

Multiresolution segmentation (MRS) is one of the most commonly used image segmentation algorithms in the remote-sensing community. This algorithm has three user-defined parameters: scale, shape, and compactness. The scale parameter (SP) is the most crucial one in determining the average size of the image segments generated. Since setting this...

Author:
Despite much attention on “ecosystem services” and their potential role in disaster risk reduction (DRR), it is still unclear how ecosystem services can effectively be used for developing risk reduction strategies across the level of operations. On one hand, scientists have proved the utility of ecosystem services for DRR beyond doubts, say for...

Article 5 of the Paris Agreement specifies implementation of REDD+ (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) through results-based payments. Currently, however, REDD+ resultsbased financing is insufficient for incentivizing full implementation of REDD+ by developing countries. In this article, we examine how a new bilateral...
