The land use and forestry sector accounts for a large part of Sri Lanka’s greenhouse gas emissions and can play a major part of Sri Lanka’s strategy to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Data and information on land use and forests in terms of area extent and carbon stock variability between different ecosystems is limited in Sri Lanka. The research conducted and presented in this thesis was... more
