Monitoring local communities and land use in the project area

Challenge ID:

HCP-4204

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Monitoring local communities and land use in the project area.

Theme:

ON 4.2: Environmental monitoring - Continuous monitoring of changes throughout the lifecycle

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Assess changes to land use and settlement in project area as development proceeds. Track potential encroachment into project area adjacent to buildings and assets.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Monitoring land use is important for environmental and social risk management. Knowledge of land use changes can support community relationship management. Information needed to avoid conflict.

Thematic information requirements:

Land cover

Land use

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Ortho base images

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Ground-based surveys, fly-overs, high resolution satellite images.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Land use change detection from medium to high resolution optical imagery.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Methods are well developed and are suitable for this challenge. Systematic monitoring methods are desirable.
