Digitized land-use maps and interpreted satellite images were used to quantify land-use changes. Geo-referenced databases of population and digitized maps of roads and topography were used to determine which factors could be used to explain observed changes in landuse. The study analyzed the relationship between carbon emissions during this period and two types of possible causal factors: ‘predisposing’ factors that determine the susceptibility of a particular area of forest to change (slope, distance to agriculture and roads, land tenure) and ‘driving’ factors representing the pressures for change (population density, poverty).

Such matrices could be used to predict future deforestation rates and provide a verifiable evidence-base for defining baseline carbon emissions for forest conservation projects. Based on the results of the analysis, two matrices were constructed, using population density as the single most important driving factor and distance from roads and distance from agriculture as the two alternatives for the predisposing factors of deforestation.
