Abstract

Deforestation and forest degradation are the second leading causes of greenhouse emissions and fossil fuel combustion, which is responsible for over 17% of global carbon dioxide emissions. Deforestation and forest degradation have become an important issue concerning climate change mitigation, highlighted in the Governmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report in 2007. About 75% of the emissions from tropical deforestation and forest degradation have been from developing countries containing large areas of tropical forest, including India. Global initiatives such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change program on Reducing Emissions. In this thesis, we are mapping about the deforestation for maintaining future of living organisms.
