“…High dependency of some local communities on wetland ecosystem services has been reported elsewhere, for example in the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve of Eastern Nepal [52,53] and Kratie province of Cambodia [54]. While all ecosystem services are important for rural livelihoods, fishing, tourism, particularly those based on bird watching, and fuel wood are major ecosystem services on which the wetland community depends.…”

“…A home to 40% of the world's species and 12% of all animal species (Mitsch and Gosselink 2000), wetlands cover around 6% of the world's land area (Zedler and Kercher 2005) of which the largest area (31.8%) is in Asia (Davidson et al 2018). The wetland provides a wide array of provisioning, supporting, cultural and regulating services contributing to human wellbeing (Lamsal et al 2015;Sharma et al 2015;Chaudhary et al 2016Chaudhary et al , 2017. Converting such benefits in economic terms, 12.8 million km 2 of the existing global wetland could yield 70 billion United States Dollar (USD, Schuijt and Brander 2004).…”

“…Socially, culturally, and ecologically important ecosystems were also identified and their perceived values ranked in a similar manner. Socio-economically important ecosystems and services were defined as those that are important for subsistence livelihoods and economy; culturally important were defined as those that are important in tradition and culture such as sacred plants, animals, wetlands, and sacred groves; and ecologically important were defined as those that are important for ecological balance and resilience based on various research work in the region and elsewhere (Castro et al 2014, Chaudhary et al 2016, 2017.…”

“…It yields better classification results with a higher degree of accuracy than pixel-based methods, as it uses both spectral and spatial information (Lang et al 2011). A hierarchical classification scheme was used with six major land classes; the detailed methodology is described in Chaudhary et al (2016). Briefly, eCognition Developer software was used to divide the image into objects that were similar in terms of selected attributes using indices like the land and water mask (LWM) was then created, during class modeling, through band ratio and texture information based on spectral values and vegetation indices like the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).…”
