Land Use Land Cover Assessment of the Cape Three Points Forest and Linked Ecosystems

February 26, 2024 - In Climate Change Publications

Despite this high biological diversity, the ecological integrity of the reserve, including the forest quality and extent is increasingly threatened by human activities. Farming along the fringes of the forest is reducing the size of the forest buffer. Illegal logging, illegal mining, charcoal production and wildlife poaching are also on the rise within the forest and along its boundaries. The purpose of this research, therefore, was to assess the current status of the Cape Three Points Forest reserve and the adjacent mangrove wetlands through the analysis of spatial data in order to inform land use decision making.
