Zambezi River Basin Land Use, Land Use Change and Soil Erosion

Primary tabs

This dataset provides Land Use, Land Use Change and Soil Loss (Area: Shire sub basin) at 10m resolution.
1) Land use maps: covers land use for the years 2005 and 2010 and the resulting changes
2) Erosion map of 2010: Relative potential based on the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) erosion formula that uses information on: annual rainfall in 2010, soil type, slope, slope length, land use in 2010 and farming practices.

This dataset is one of the products produced under the 2008-2012 World Bank (WBG) - European Space Agency (ESA) partnership, and is published in the partnership report: Earth Observation for Sustainable Development, June 2013
