Remote sensing provides the basic data to undertake inventory of land, as well as the temporal information required to monitor sustainable land management practices. In this papaer, the current use of remote sensing for sustainable land managemnt is reviewed, and the potential of future (new) satellite systems to contribute to sustainable development is explored. Other elements for successful sustainable development (ie, good policy and participatory approaches) are then compared and contrasted with information requirements.
