Rapport de la mission de cartographie de l’occupation et de l’utilisation du sol

Intégré totalement dans le bassin versant des fleuves côtiers Bolo et Niouniourou, le linéaire côtier du département de Fresco est étroitement lié aux activités qui s’y déroulent. C’est dans ce cadre que l’exécution de la composante 2 du Programme WA BiCC intitulée « Accroître la résilience côtière » à travers son module de la cartographie de l’occupation du sol, est effectuée. À partir des des images satellitaires des cartes d’occupation et d’utilisation du sol ont été réalisées à différentes dates : 1990 et 2017 pour l’ensemble du département et 2018 pour le paysage lagunaire de Fresco.

Fresco Land Cover and Land Use Report

The land use mapping module is a study requested by Component 2 of WA BiCC Program ‘Increasing coastal resilience’, implemented in the administrative area (Prefecture) of Fresco. The coastline of this prefecture forms part of the catchment area for the Bolo and Niouniourou coastal rivers and is closely associated with activities in the locality. Satellite images were used to map land cover and land use at different dates: 1990 and 2017 for the whole prefecture and 2018 for the Fresco lagoon landscape.

Sherbro River Estuary Co-Management Plan

This Co-Management Plan (CMP) for the Sherbro River Estuary (SRE) was developed by national and local stakeholders through technical and financial support from the United State Agency for International Development (USAID) -funded West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change Program (WA BiCC) in response to the need for sustainable conservation of the SRE. This CMP focuses on the people and biodiversity necessary to achieve ecological resilience to mitigate the effects of climate change. The CMP has been developed through consultations and data gathering at all levels of socio- political and governance structures and a direct field mapping exercise. The Plan represents a collaboration among communities in 10 chiefdoms of the Bonthe and Moyamba Districts in the Southern Province of Sierra Leone communities and the National Protected Areas Authority (NPAA), supported by government, civil society, and non-governmental organization (NGO) partners.

Sierra Leone Mangrove Forest Cover Change and Carbon Stock Assessment 2020

This land cover and carbon assessment of mangroves in Sierra Leone follows-on and builds upon a 2017 report that documented mangrove extent and carbon stocks in the same region between 1990 and 2016 (eventually published as WABiCC, 2020). Now, as then, it is intended to contribute to coastal conservation and climate resilience building activities, and to act as a benchmark for project activities under the West Africa Biodiversity and Climate Change (WA BiCC) project or future related activities. In this report, current mangrove forest cover is examined as is change in land cover between 2016 and early 2020, and change in carbon stocks between 2016 and early 2020 for coastal Sierra Leone.
