The report is about an assessment of monitoring in the central cardamom protected forest (CCPF). The assessment involves three different stages including 1) define biomass reference for monitoring in each forest strata of interest, 2) identify and assess the scale and intensity of forest degradation drivers, and 3) identify and assess monitoring approaches based on defined biomass change thresholds. Three main approaches were evaluated as monitoring options including: ground‐based field measurements, remotely sensed imagery, and predictive modeling. Potential variants of each approach were assessed using a qualitative ranking system. The results were then used to develop an integrated monitoring system combining elements of all three approaches. The monitoring system takes into consideration the important drivers of degradation in the CCPF, the operational circumstances, and the expected capacity for implementation.
