Remote Sensing for Sustainable Development

Course Description:

This course explores the use of remote sensing for sustainable development. The course will cover the fundamentals of remote sensing, as well as its applications in a variety of sustainable development domains, such as:

Natural resource management: Remote sensing can be used to monitor the state of natural resources, such as forests, water bodies, and agricultural land. This information can be used to make informed decisions about resource management and conservation.

Environmental monitoring: Remote sensing can be used to monitor environmental changes, such as deforestation, desertification, and climate change. This information can be used to track the progress of these changes and to develop strategies for mitigation and adaptation.

Disaster management: Remote sensing can be used to monitor natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, and droughts. This information can be used to assess the impact of these disasters and to provide assistance to those affected.

Urban planning: Remote sensing can be used to monitor urban growth and development. This information can be used to plan for the future growth of cities and to ensure that they are sustainable.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

Understand the fundamentals of remote sensing

Apply remote sensing to sustainable development problems

Evaluate the use of remote sensing for sustainable development

Communicate the results of remote sensing analysis to a variety of audiences
