How IO Monitor Can Help

Timely, actionable data for insights and decisions

Food and Farming

Agricultural expansion can lead to deforestation, soil degradation, loss of biodiversity, and water pollution, and unhealthy crops can create food insecurity. IO Monitor can help assess risks to food systems as well as the surrounding ecosystems by comparing the amount of land under agricultural production to previous growing seasons. One example is the expansion of agricultural land into rainforest areas of South America, clearly visible in this sample data from Bolivia.

Sustainable Sourcing

Deforestation is a significant contributor to climate change and a challenge for corporations and governments around the world. For organizations committed to being Deforestation Free, IO Monitor can help identify where supply chains impact tree loss, and provide quarterly change results in the regions where companies operate.

Urban Sprawl and Human Expansion

Cities around the world are growing at incredible rates. IO Monitor can help to verify the magnitude and spatial patterns of this rapid urban expansion. In the span of one year, land in the designated New State Area, Xiong’an, China, shows increases of built area. This same growth can be seen in cities around the world such as New Cairo (Egypt), The Line (Saudi Arabia), and Las Vegas, United States.

Forests and Water Supply Sample Data

Forests and Water Supply

Forests act as natural water filters, improving the quality of water by removing pollutants and sediment. Trees also help reduce the risk of both floods and droughts. IO Monitor can help assess where forest loss has occurred and might lead to an impact on critical watersheds and downstream communities. Customers use this data to assess risks and prioritize action plans. Tree loss due to conflict increases risk to the downstream Dnipro Reservoir in Ukraine, which can be seen in these results.
