Lucid Project - General Methodology
The goal of the project is to provide methodological advice on how to use land use change analysis to identify and monitor changes in biodiversity and land degradation. As such, the project will prepare a methodological guidebook by the end of the three year period.
A secondary goal of the project is to provide information on the linkages between land degradation, biodiversity and land use change based on East African information.
Each site has a working team to carry out research activities and the teams comprise of a site leader, scientists and students.
The objectives of the project's fieldwork are two fold:
These objectives are being met using previously gathered information as much as possible. The socio-economic component of the research will be particularly based on existing data, and on team members' reflections of various methods that they have experienced.
In order to have cross-site comparability of the linkages, however,
ecological information in particular is being collected in a common framework
in each site. This information and data collection methods to ensure cross-site
comparability are summarized in the table below.
