Increasing concern as to how human activities impact Africa’s environment has led to documentation and quantification of the changes taking place. Through a combination of ground photographs, current and historical satellite images, and narrative based on extensive scientific evidence, this publication illustrates how humans have altered their surroundings and continue to make observable and measurable changes to Africa and its environment. A 350 page, large-format, hard cover atlas of environmental change in each of Africa’s 53 countries, with reports on their progress toward the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goal (MDG) 7: Ensure environmental sustainability.

 

This Atlas underscores the importance of developing, harnessing and sharing technologies that help provide deeper understanding of the dynamics of the changes. The words and pictures within these pages also serve as a vivid reminder that Africa's environment is a source of livelihoods from many African communities. It contributes significantly to socio-economic development of the continent, and sound policy decisions and positive actions by societies and individuals are needed to sustain the environment and the well-being of its inhabitants. The information provided will not only be useful in the context of the selected locations, but will also underscore the intrinsic value of the harnessing, visualizing and communicating technologies to gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics and impacts of Africa's changing environment.
