Environment - Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
The Role of Remote Sensing in FAO's Global Forest Resources Assessment and Monitoring Programme
The need for assessment and systematic observations of forest cover and to establish and/or strengthen the necessary capacities has been strongly expressed in UNCED's Agenda 21. In keeping with its mandate FAO has executed a series of forest resources assessment projects. This paper focuses on the remote sensing approach used for the tropical part of the Forest Resources Assessment 1990 Project.

A methodology for monitoring wetlands for fisheries using NOAA AVHRR LAC thermal data
Frequent baseline data on wetlands are essential for assessing fishery potential and for a host of hydrologic and environmental applications. Remote sensing is the only tool which can be used to provide those data at frequent intervals and economically. Thus an operative methodology based on the thermal inertia difference between dry and wet lands has been developed from NOAA (National Oceanic and... more

FAO supports the development of a new Spatial Data Management Unit in Lebanon's Ministry of Agriculture
This paper reports on the technical assistance FAO is providing to develop Lebanon's monitoring capabilities using remotely sensed data. It is also offering advice on the nature and localities of change and on protective measures for selected elements of the agricultural resource base that are at risk. These would be based on leading-edge use of satellite earth observation and telecommunications t... more
