Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability Assessment Land Use Mapping

Report summarising the land use and habitat mapping of Bonriki reserve using high resolution satellite imagery and aerial photography . Mapping derived from historical imagery and UAS mosaic.

The Bonriki Inundation Vulnerability Assessment (BIVA) project aimed to improve understanding of the vulnerability of the Bonriki freshwater reserve to coastal hazards and climate variability and change. Improved knowledge of risks to this freshwater resource will enable better adaptation planning by the Government of Kiribati.
