Service for SDG 2.4.1 and 15.3.1 indicators assessment

Profile

The project provides informational service on the SDG indicators 2.4.1 “Proportion of agricultural area under productive and sustainable agriculture” and 15.3.1 “Proportion of land that is degraded over total land area” based on the 10 m. agricultural land productivity and crop type mapping on Sentinel-2 data as well as Sen-4-CAP. This project created by Space Research Institute NASU-SSAU – the main scientific research organization on the remote sensing field in Ukraine, ERA-Planet programme member and Copernicus Academy member. The methodology for this pilot was developed within the ERA-Planet programme GEOEssential project. The workflows for data processing, crop type mapping and SDGs indicators assessment was developed and tested within Amazon GEO-Grant using Amazon computational resources. The project is compliant with European initiatives on the SDGs and Sendai Framework and the unique feature of the project is usage of moderate resolution Sentinel-1,2 and Landsat-8 mission images for land degradation assessment on the country and field levels. In addition, the project aims on the extent of the European technologies such as SEN-4-Cap, CREODIAS, GEOEsential workflows for territory of Ukraine and neighboring countries.

Proposal

The main functions of the service is the assessment of the SDG indicators on the country level, regional land productivity assessment, crop maps analysis, agriculture statistics delivery, national SDG report preparation and field level land productivity calculation. The results of the project will valuable for scientific and private-business organizations as well as for academicals sector. The tool will allow to assess the land degradation and SDG indicators.

Benefits

  • Improved response to SDG
  • Accurate assessment of the current agricultural activities and their sustainability
  • More sustainable agriculture activities on the regional and national level
  • Improved management of the land use

EO based phytoplankton biomass service
Inland Water, Assess and monitor water bodies   , Local and regional planners, Regional governments, City authorities, Environment, Utilities (water, electricity, waste) , Water plants, Coastal management agencies
Using knowledge about how certain substances, such as one of the main pigments of the phytoplankton (Chlorophyll a - Chl a) alter the colour of the water, these parameters can be derived from optial Earth Observation (EO) satellite sensors. Water Insight provides monitoring services of Chl a based on EO data which is validated with in situmeasurements. Also the maps of WFD phytoplankton biomass status classes are created, by application of the WFD tresholds on Chl a as a proxy for phytoplankton biomass. The maps are made available in a portal, which allows to follow the lakes in time, zoom and download maps and time series.
