General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Monitoring the social impact of O&G development e.g. displacement of communities/ tribes, changes in land use or impacts caused by construction activity

Thematic information requirements

4. Obtain detailed land-use information,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

The construction site and its impact on the environment can be relatively intense during the early E&P phases, particularly when the site is being constructed.  This may impacts both the immediate, local society in or distant societies such as those along

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

This manly done by field surveys which is costly, labour intensive and because it's "point-based", the context of the larger ecosystem can be misunderstood.

9

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

EO-based products can provide consistent, timely information on social impacts of O&G development.  High to very high resolution land cover products based on EO data would be useful for analysis of areas in the close proximity to particular assets. For la

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO could be a useful complimentary technology providing information on population density, building inventory, exposure mapping, settlement mapping and site location
