The loss of forests plays a crucial role in climate change. Deforestation and forest degradation represent a significant contribution to anthropogenic CO2 emissions. One solution to address this problem is REDD +, with the objective of significantly reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, while seeking to promote sustainable development and multiple benefits. The publication presents a case study on the role of spatial information for land use planning and REDD + in Paraguay.
