Planning for the social impacts of mine closure is essential to an effective closure process, especially in developing countries where impoverishment can lead to a high level of mine dependency. This article presents the initial results of a study that seeks to monitor and improve social wellbeing and sustainability through mine closure. The research responds to an initiative by a network of community environmental organisations in the Peruvian Andes interested in improving the sustainability of the social outcomes of mines in their communities. The research adapted value-focused decision analysis (R. Keeney, Value Focused Thinking: A Path to Creative Decision-Making, University Press, Harvard, 1992), a methodology...

This data was used in the analysis for the article “Burn Severity Controls on Post-fire Araucaria-Nothofagus Regeneration in the Andean Cordillera” by T. Assal, M. Gonzalez and J. Sibold. The aim of the study was to investigate post-fire regeneration patterns of forests on the west slope of the Andes; to evaluate the relationship between remotely sensed burn severity and forest mortality; and to assess controls of burn severity on forest response at local spatio-temporal scales. This dataset reflects plot level data that was collected in the field and during the subsequent analysis.

This dataset reflects the burn severity calculated from Landsat data as part of the analysis.
