Energy is an issue for everyone and nowhere more so than in the SADCC countries. But for sensible policy and planning, clear information about the extent of resources is needed.This innovative study combines the results of field assessment of biomass with advanced techniques in remote sensing by satellite to give the first comprehensive and detailed picture of biomass distribution throughout the SADCC region.The authors describe their techniques, classify the kinds of biomass and give its distribution, by that classification, in all nine SADCC countries. Woody biomass resources and supplies are clearly analysed.This book is essential reading for project officers, planners and all others involved in the collection and analysis of data on biomass resources throughout the world.
