KEY MESSAGES • groundwater is a major source of urban supply worldwide and aquifer storage represents a key resource for achieving water-supply security under climate change and extended drought • private waterwell construction for urban in-situ self-supply tends to escalate as a ‘coping strategy’ during periods of inadequate utility water service,...

Since the Rio ‘Earth’ Summit of 1992, sustainable development has become the major policy response to tackling global environmental degradation, from climate change to loss of biodiversity and deforestation. Market instruments such as emissions trading, payments for ecosystem services and timber certification have become the main mechanisms for...

This paper demonstrates the importance of considering scale issues when estimating the accuracy of land use/land cover maps, particularly when satellite images having different spatial resolutions (i.e. pixel sizes) are used in combination to generate the land use/land cover maps. The results are important for creators and users of these types of...

This study provides a computationally-simple method to annually update existing national forest maps and model future forest change. It involves integrating national forest maps and global tree cover maps to monitor annual forest change, and then modeling future change by linear extrapolation of the historical trend.
