The task will assess the decision tree workflows in the SDG 15.3.1 Good Practice Guidance (GPG) document by addressing specific data concerns for island countries, mountains and arid regions (low SOC and vegetation) that desire to measure land productivity.
Focus on Pacific Islands or other tropical islands. The primary issue is cloud cover and SAR coverage.
Conduct an analysis of data availability from past, current and future missions. Consider high resolution data (e.g., Planet, Maxar) with GEO support. Consider Landsat and Sentinel-2 to achieve higher resolution products vs. 100-meter baseline.
Coordinate with ESA and the Sen4LDN project (VITO contractor).
