Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


<em><font size="4"><p> </p></em></font><p>This study was aimed at analysing land cover and land use dynamics, and at identifying and evaluating the driving forces behind deforestation, by relating population dynamics, village distribution patterns and socio-economic indicators with spatial aspects of land cover changes. It also aimed at knowing the conditions of the local people, their opinions and aspirations regarding conservation. A land re-allocation model for agricultural land and protection forest, as an approach to solving the problem was established</p><p>Forestland dynamics and forestland fragmentation, which showed a continuing decrease in forestland, were studied using two land allocation plans. Decreasing role of the Forestry Agency was also described, as one of the main actors involved in the forestland use planning process. Their strategic factors were identified, and a possible strategy to counter the problems currently faced by the Forestry Agency was formulated. It was concluded with a concept for a forestland use classification by proposing more factors to be considered, based on the principles of economic viability, social acceptance and environmental soundness.
