6208.3 - Mapping and Spatial Analysis of Socio-Economic and Environmental Indicators for Sustainable Development, Tunisia

Thursday, July 6
11:10 AM - 11:30 AM
Location: Maryland C

The aim of our study is to providing reliable and relevant data for the contributors to the regional development. The Mapping specifies a set of up-to-date indicators and which include various domains: Agriculture, Energy, Industry, Tourism, Transport, Urban planning, Exploitation of natural resources, Infrastructure, Health, Environment, Education, Information and Communication Technologies, Social affairs and employability, Culture, Sport, Religion, Local authorities, etc. Quoting in reference, the document of the indicators of sustainable development of Tunisia, was Edited in 2014 by the Tunisian Observatory center of the Sustainable Development: (OTEDD).

The Socio-Economic and Environmental Indicators (SEE.I) allow to observe, to analyze the economic data and to measure their impact on the immediate environment and their contributions to the social and environmental networks. As examples of the Socio-Economic and Environmental Indicators, we cite:

1-Exploitation rate of natural resources (water, oil, useful materials etc.),
2-Intensity of the energy consumption by sector (agriculture, industry and transport),
3- Net Migratory flows per governorate and per reason
4- Quality checking of the air in urban areas
5- Strengthening the adaptation to the climate change
6- Vulnerability of the coastal domain to the risk of marine submersion due to the sea-level rise, etc.
Within this framework, a case study of the Local and Regional Sustainable Development in Tunisia and particularly in the south of Tunisia will be undertaken. A current state-of-the art of the “SEE. I”, is necessary to help guiding the investors in their actions on the basis of the Geomatics approach and particularly the digital mapping as well as the multi-criteria spatial and temporal analysis of the “SEE. I”.

Keywords: Mapping, Spatial Analysis, Socio-Economic and Environmental Indicators (SEE. I.), Tunisia, Sustainable Development.
