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
Mapping coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures by satellite imaging radar. Case study of the Lingayen Gulf, the Philippines
Inventory and monitoring of coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures provide the necessary baseline data for decision-making on aquaculture and mariculture development, including regulatory laws, environmental protection and revenue collection. Mapping these structures can be performed with good accuracy and at regular intervals by satellite remote sensing, which allows observation of vast are... more
