73 communities were visited, 12 workshops conducted, 36 key informants interviewed, 153 forest plots assessed, 1317 households interviewed and over 4000 ground control points for satellite data interpretation recorded in the field. We thank all partners, communities and people in the villages for active participation and look foreward to the next challenge: scientific and integrated data evaluation.
