Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
A geospatial framework for the analysis of poverty and environment links
This report explains how georeferenced information can be used to bring greater precision to the understanding of spatially-related factors underlying poverty and food insecurity and discusses the role of Food Insecurity and Vulnerability Information and Mapping System (FIVIMS) in promoting greater use of geospatial information.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
Coastal GTOS Strategic design and phase 1 implementation plan. Environment and Natural Resources Series 9
There is a clear need for information on global and regional change in coastal areas bordering the world’s large water bodies. Collection of in situ and remote sensing data must be improved and associated data management, model production, and communication infrastructure developed to provide free and timely information to developed and developing nations.

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
Preparation of land cover database of Bulgaria through remote sensing and GIS
The FAO project TCP/BUL/8922 "Strengthening Capacity in Agricultural Development through Remote Sensing and GIS" has produced 14 land cover maps at 1:50 000 scale for selected test areas of the country, covering 5 600 sq km. These maps were prepared using Landsat satellite data, acquired in 1998 and 1999 as the main data source and thus represent the land cover existing at that time. The land cove... more

Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
Remote sensing for decision-makers
In this Special, we present summaries of seven FAO case studies on the use of remote sensing and geographic information systems in management of renewable natural resources in agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The summaries are adapted from the Remote Sensing for Decision-makers Series, a collection of 17 short papers available from the FAO Environment and Natural Resources Service (SDRN). The ... more
