Reconnaissance surveys of study sites get under way in Ethiopia
Sentinel researchers have begun the process of shortlisting study sites where there has been expansion of agriculture into natural habitats in each of the three Sentinel focal countries – Ethiopia, Ghana and Zambia – beginning with Ethiopia.
Impacts of agricultural expansion: what will we explore?
At UCL we’re interested in this question: do areas where crops are grown overlap with areas that are naturally high in biodiversity?
Site selection for Sentinel
The Sentinel project seeks to understand the extent, nature and impacts of agricultural expansion into natural habitats.
