    Based on: Global Ecoregions, Major Habitat Types, Biogeographical Realms and The Nature Conservancy Terrestrial Assessment Units as of December 14, 2009. Developed originally by Olson, D. M. and E. Dinerstein (2002), Bailey (1995) and Environment Canada (Wiken, 1986), and modified by The Nature Conservancy (TNC). Ecoregions are relatively large units of land containing distinct assemblages of natural communities and species, with boundaries that approximate the original extent of natural communities prior to major land-use change. Ecoregions are nested within two higher-order classifications: biomes (14) and biogeographic realms (8). Source: WWF

    Total number of fire occurrences, calculated using data from the MODIS satellite (products MOD14A2 and MYD14A2, "Thermal Anomalies and Fire", https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/products/modis_products_table/myd14a2). In each pixel of the derived map (1-kilometer resolution), the total is based time-series based on 8-daily tiles, one for each MODIS product. Fire occurrence is recorded if it occurs at least in one of the two products. Each time-series step is based on 9 MODIS tiles: (name,lonmin, latmin, lonmax, latmax): 'h19v08',1111950.519667,1111950.519667,2223901.039333,-0.000000; 'h19v09',1111950.519667,-0.000000,2223901.039333,-1111950.519667; 'h19v10',1111950.519667,-1111950.519667,2223901.039333,-2223901.039333; 'h20v08',2223901.039333,1111950.519667,3335851.559000,-0.000000; 'h20v09',2223901.039333,-0.000000,3335851.559000,-1111950.519667; 'h20v10',2223901.039333,-1111950.519667,3335851.559000,-2223901.039333; 'h21v08',3335851.559000,1111950.519667,4447802.078667,-0.000000; 'h21v09',3335851.559000,-0.000000,4447802.078667,-1111950.519667; 'h21v10',3335851.559000,-1111950.519667,4447802.078667,-2223901.039333; The initial maps derived from MODIS products were concatenated, re-projected, and converted to uint8. In addition, only the data within the DRC borders were retained.

    An initiative bearing direct or indirect impact on greenhouse gas emissions due to deforestation and/or forest degradation, sustainable future and increase of forest carbon stocks, in the short or medium term, and proposed to be inserted in the national REDD+ strategy.

    A series of activities aiming to modify the dynamics of deforestation and/or forest degradation and/or to increase forest carbon stocks, within a delimited geographical area, in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions linked to these dynamics. A results based compensation mechanism ( based on funds or carbon market) has been put into place to validate and encourage these reductions. The emissions must be measured, monitored and validated according to a methodology previously approved by an internationally recognized institution. Reductions in greenhouse gas emissions are measured according to a plausible reference level previously established according to the methodology enforced by the host country.
