Exploring Multiple Benefits mapping toolbox

This customised ArcGIS 9.3.1 toolbox has been developed at UNEP-WCMC for REDD+ multiple benefits analyses. It provides both novice and experienced GIS users with a series of raster analysis tools to help identify, map and understanding the spatial relationship between ecosystem carbon stocks, other ecosystem services, biodiversity, land-use and pressures on natural resources. The resolution of the analysis is defined by the user. The toolbox is flexible, providing a set of tools that can be used interchangeably whilst using a consistent and efficient methodology that will decreases the time required to undertake such analyses.

It has been developed through work funded by both the UN-REDD Programme and the German Environment Ministry (BMU) through its Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN).
