Conservation of Coastal Watersheds in Mexico

The World Bank is supporting conservation of the coastal watersheds in Mexico. Earth Observation will be used, among other things, to: establish the baseline to support soil protection, improved agro-ecosystem practices and rehabilitation on riparian zones; assess climate chance impacts and correlate them with the change patterns in the land use; estimate watershed erosion. Coastal water quality information is important for the management of marine natural protected areas. EO-derived Total Suspended Matter is used to measure sediments and other depositions originating from land sources that are characterized by high particles concentration, which is a case of many pollutants. River plume monitoring can be an indicator for erosion and help design measures for erosion protection. Land use maps are used to provide input information for modelling of the carbon cycle and to support the monitoring of biodiversity loss and land degradation.
