Geographically disaggregated poverty data are vital for better understanding development issues and ensuring development efforts are directed to the places where they are most needed. Poverty has traditionally been measured by data on consumption, income, or assets.

The FRA 2020 Remote Sensing survey is a global collaborative study of the Land use dynamic between the years 2000, 2010 and 2018 focused on forest and forest changes conducted by FAO.

Regulatory air pollution monitoring in India is mostly limited to urban areas. Without a dense network of monitors, it is difficult to capture the fine spatial variations of PM2.5, one of the major pollutants with severe implications for human health.

Air pollution is increasingly understood as a global issue, requiring an understanding of pollution sources, transport, and transformation from local to regional to global scales (IPCC, 2013).

This document presents the details on monitoring of glacial lakes and water bodies in the Indian Himalayan region during the month of October 2021 using satellite remote sensing technique including the data used and methodology followed in this study.

India’s ‘National Wetland Decadal Change Atlas’ was released on World Wetlands Day 2022 on 2 February. Formally named as ‘Space-Based Observation of Indian Wetlands’, the Atlas is documentation of wetlands across India, especially regarding the changes from 2006-07 till 2017-18.

This paper quantifies the significance and magnitude of the effect of measurement error in remote sensing weather data in the analysis of smallholder agricultural productivity. The analysis leverages 17 rounds of nationally-representative, panel household survey data from six countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Director General, National Mission for Clean Ganga, released a detailed report on the opportunities in the Water sector that can benefit from the use of Geospatial technologies through an online event.

A new report titled “Behind the Smokescreen” by Greenpeace India reveals that a year after initial nationwide lockdowns due to Covid-19, NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) pollution has increased in India’s eight most populous state capitals studied.

Early responses to the Covid-19 pandemic led to dramatic reductions in air pollutant concentrations in many locations worldwide. Research has suggested that significant health benefits could be realised if these air pollution reductions remain in the long-term after government restrictions are relaxed.
