RAMSAR SITE REHABILITATION PROJECT
SDGs TARGET GOALS
1990 DATA ANALYSIS
Using the FAO classification scheme, built-up was estimated to be 2.8% of the total extent of the site, Forest 36.2%, Grassland/Shrubland 42.4, Salt Pan/Beach Sand/Bareland 11.1 and Lagoon extent is 7.5. The data above depict the extent of rich-biodiversity in the area that contributed massively to climate regulation.
2010 DATA ANALYSIS
In the Year 2010, there was a massive growth of the Forest extent of the Site with an estimated portion of 40.1%. Grassland/Shrubland consisted of 39.8% of the area, Lagoon size was estimated at 7.9%, built-up took a share of 7.4 whereas bareland/beach sand declined to 4.8%
2020 DATA ANALYSIS
In the year 2020, there have been extreme and unexpected changes in the variable percentage of the classification scheme used in the research. Built-up increased and took a share of 14.7%, Lagoon size is currently estimated at 7.8, Forest has reduced to 22.5, Grassland 44.2 and Bareland/Beach Sand is 10.8
