Research methods

The sentinel landscape framework has been developed to collect baseline data on people’s livelihoods, cropping systems and utilization of tree and forest resources for monitoring purposes using a set of standardized variables – both socio-economic as well as biophysical – to assess the relationship between livelihoods and land health in forested landscapes, which have been exposed to various forms of land-use change. Several types of research instruments have been prototyped based on existing survey instruments including, IFRI, stages of progress methodology and the Land Degradation Surveillance Framework:
