Satellites Help Improve Urban Livelihoods

"How to use satellite Earth Observation (EO) data for mapping public urban spaces, green open areas and other features for improving urban livelihoods?"

Public urban spaces such as streets, open spaces, green areas, parks, and public buildings are necessary components for a livable city. Inadequate, poorly designed or privatised public spaces often generate exclusion and marginalisation and therefore degrade the livability of the urban environment.

This webinar focuses on the satellite EO data types and GIS analysis used to improve the knowledge of these spaces, as a potential tool for authorities to manage and plan in data-scarce cities. The data used as examples has been applied in two WBG Neighborhood Upgrading Projects, Karachi Neighborhood Improvement Project (KNIP) and Dhaka City Neighborhood Upgrading Project (DCNUP).

Webinar delivered by EO4SD-URBAN project consortium for European Space Agency (ESA) and World Bank Group (WBG). The material is extracted from training material provided by the EO4SD-URBAN project which is funded by the European Space Agency and implemented by GAF AG and Consortium.
