Présentation
In Kenya, unmanaged extraction of sand and aggregates has potentially serious long-term and wide-ranging impacts.  The EO4SAS project provided Kenya with an understanding of the sand extraction within the country, together with demonstrating the role Earth Observation (EO) data could play in monitoring this activity alongside ideas on how the country might improve the management of its sand resources.   The final service aims to deliver comprehensive sand management system combining an EO satellite data monitoring tool underpinned by a resource management and governance toolkit ; providing insights into sand extraction sites and rates, flows to market, environmental changes associated with extraction activities, best practice policies and procedures. This will provide Kenya with a solution to improve the monitoring and regulation of sand extraction, supporting progress towards sustainable sand management
