dc.descriptionThis Atlas does two unique things: It assesses Kenya's progress towards its own goals of improving the environment to achieve development goals
dc.descriptionand it delivers a stunning bird's-eye view of environmental change through the use of paired satellite images taken years apart. In the first case, it demonstrates that the social and economic pillars of Kenya's development plan, Vision 2030, need to be built on a solid foundation of environmental sustainability. Similarly, it teases out the links between the environment and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), showing how the 7th goal, environmental sustainability, underpins them all. In its second unique contribution, the Atlas contains an array of visual tools, including current and historical remote sensing images, maps, and photographs, that help scientifically document site-specific environmental change across the country. This Atlas will serve as an important educational tool to improve local, national, and international knowledge about environmental change in Kenya and to stimulate action at all levels to protect the rich resources that are the base of its culture, economy, and human well-being
