Abstract:

A new paradigm that is fast gaining ascendancy the world over is the concept of sustainable development. Sustainable development in its simplest form advocates that the present generation develops (manage) the available resources to achieve growth and social and economic well-being in such a manner that will not jeopardize the chances of generation yet unborn in meeting their own needs. But then, how do w e attain sustainable development? Well, this can be achieved through Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). Environmental Impact Assessment in turn can be done holistically only through the technique of Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information systems (GIS). This paper therefore discusses sustainable development through environmental impact assessment; and the best approach to studying environmental impact assessment in remote sensing and geographic information systems technique are also discussed.
