Land Use Change Analysis as an Approach for Investigating Biodiversity Loss and Land Degradation

Project Summary

The project will analyze new and existing data concerning the linkages between the processes of change in biodiversity, land degradation and land use in order to design a guide on how to use land use change analysis to identify spatial and temporal trends, and linkages of change in biodiversity and land degradation; integrate ecological, socioeconmomic and land use data and theory to develop a replicable analytical framework to identify the root causes of land use change leading to changes in biodiversity and land degradation in East Africa.
