Monitoring and managing distributed water, sanitation, agricultural, and energy resources and services in remote and/or low-income regions are increasingly important as population pressures and climate change impact the reliability of these resources. The aim and scope of this Special Issue of Sustainability is to present and review emerging methods and technologies including “internet of things” sensor systems, cellular-based data collection, remote sensing, machine learning, and other analytical tools designed to support the remote monitoring and management of water, sanitation, agricultural, and energy resources in remote and/or low-income regions. Examples may include remotely reporting sensor technologies for monitoring water service infrastructure; satellite-based remote sensing of agricultural yields; localized air quality monitoring; cellular-based survey and decision support tools; and machine learning-enabled analytics. Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050). This special issue belongs to the section “Sustainable Use of the Environment and Resources”.
