Tropical rainforest vulnerability index

Tropical rainforest vulnerability index (TFVI) is a new method developed by scientists to monitor the green cover of tropical rain forest. It will provide warnings about the world?s tropical rainforests that are losing the capacity to cycle carbon and water ? the most important tool for combating climate change.
The TFVI will use satellite data to monitor the vulnerability of tropical rainforests at the international level. It will act as the baseline for forests across the world, enabling the scientists to better assess the threat faced by these forests. A general global index may help bring forth a unified strategy to protect rainforests across the globe.
