The international Future Earth program has been launched to function as a global research platform to provide the knowledge needed to support transformations toward sustainability. In the recent decade, there has been a substantial progress in the research of Earth observations, which have become critical to assure the success of the Future Earth program. Related topics, such as water quality, atmospheric conditions, and environmental conditions for humans, plants, and animals have been addressed and deliberated worldwide. The focus of this Special Issue aims to nurture knowledge on the acquisition of Earth observations and its applications to the contemporary practice of sustainable development and to encourage discussion concerning innovative techniques/approaches based on remote sensing data, which are used for the study of sustainable development. Research scientists and other subject matter experts are encouraged to submit innovative and challenging papers that describe advances in the following topics:
- Industry and Policy
