Monitoring and Sustainability, Remote sensing, Climate Change, Decision making


Remote sensing technology has emerged as a vital tool for monitoring and sustainably managing the environment. This paper reviews recent advances in remote sensing and their applications for environmental sustainability. A comprehensive literature review was conducted focusing on high-resolution analysis, temporal change detection, and hyper-spectral monitoring. Applications highlighted include detailed urban habitat mapping, assessing shoreline erosion, tracking forest disturbances, monitoring crop health, detecting pollution, and mapping coral reef degradation. The results showcase the quantitative insights remote sensing provides across diverse sustainability issues like climate change, urban planning, conservation, and disaster response. The paper emphasizes how ongoing improvements in remote sensing are enhancing environmental modelling capabilities and information availability, playing a key role in evidence-based decision-making for sustainable resource management.
