300 satellite photos of Africa's environmental change

Africa: Atlas of Our Changing Environment features over 300 satellite images taken in every country in Africa in over 100 locations. The ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs, some of which span a 35-year period, offer striking snapshots of local environmental transformation across the continent (AMCEM press release)

This is truly an amazing project. See the satellite photos of the environmental pain and the gain on African soil.
