Abstract: Remote sensing technology, which uses satellites and sensors to observe the Earth from space, has become indispensable for monitoring environmental changes. This work examines the mul tiple applications of remote sensing, spanning vegetation map ping, urban planning, and disaster management, crucial for pro moting environmental stewardship and sustainable resource management. As the world faces growing challenges, remote sensing emerges as a vital tool to address future environmental and socio-economic complexities in all continents. Thus, remote sensing, understood as an instrumental means for eff ective en vironmental management and optimization of resources, can be an important tool also in Africa on the path towards sustainable development, monitoring UN SDGs and fostering environmental resilience on the continent. and beyond.
