EO-ALLert “Early-Warning to the Impacts of Alluvial Mining on Sensitive Areas Using Earth Observation” aims to provide the means for development agencies and authorities to identify priority areas to be preserved from the impacts of alluvial small-scale mining. It considers the case of alluvial gold mining in Colombia and works on integrating information from satellite data and stakeholder priorities. This results in scientifically and geo-spatially based understanding of mining activities and their impacts.
