Abstract

Long-term environmental and land degradation
processes represent a major development barrier in many developing countries, especially in rural areas.
Concrete evidence on the extent, severity and underlying drivers are not fully understood. This makes it difficult to identify policies and investments that will effectively
halt and reverse land degradation such as desertification.
However, many of the contributing biophysical factors such as climate, physiology and soil erodibility, as well as anthropogenic causes such as unsustainable land management
related to population pressure, could be monitored using Earth Observation (EO). EO is particularly suited to observe extreme weather conditions, climate variability, deforestation, land use changes, and unsustainable farm management practices such as inappropriate irrigation, cultivation, resource management, and overgrazing.
