Zambia Land Accounts Report, 2010-2015
This report presents the first land accounts for Zambia for the period 2000-2015. The accounts will facilitate the monitoring and understanding of land cover changes over the specified time, which is essential for spatial planning at both national and provincial levels. This report presents the first land accounts for Zambia based on the methodology of the SEEA, where land is designed as a unique environmental asset that delineates the space in which economic activities and environmental processes take place and within which environmental assets and economic assets are located. The land account displays the changes in land cover over time, differentiating between the main land cover classes in Zambia such as forest, cropland, grassland, built up, wetlands and water bodies.
