The book focuses on issues and challenges of economic transformation of the peri-urban area around Rajshahi city of Bangladesh. Peri-urban area is the transitional zone between an urban and its nearby rural area. Characteristically, the area is neither urban nor rural but it gradually attains urban characteristics and spatially shifts from urban to rural area. As a result, the economic setting in term of occupation, income, expenditure capacity, land use, land value, infrastructure, living facilities etc. of the dwellers of this area changes rapidly. And this changing process becomes influenced by a number of factors like location, distance from urban center, road network, transportation system, marketing network, employment opportunities, governmental policies and planning and so on. Though, the urban areas have development plan but due to week implementation of plan a haphazard urban growth can be found that reduces the actual competency of the area. So, it is necessary to implement the existing development plan and initiate integrated rural-urban development plan for better, planed and furnished urban development in Bangladesh.

This study analysed market participation by maize and cassava farmers in Ondo State, Nigeria. The sample was selected via multistage sampling technique. Data were collected from 80 maize farmers and 80 cassava farmers in peri-urban and rural areas. Data were analysed using descriptive statistics, truncated regression analysis, T- and chow tests. Results revealed that the extent of agricultural commercialization in rural area (66.6%) was higher than peri-urban (65%) area under maize enterprise, while the reverse was the case with cassava enterprise with 64.94% and 69.35% for rural area and peri-urban area respectively. It was observed that age, experience, cropping system, farm size, land tenure, quantity of harvested output and unit price of output had significant influence on the intensity of market participation by maize farmers. For the cassava farmers, age, gender, farm size, source of market information, unit price of output, land tenure, household size, experience and non-farm income significantly influenced the intensity of market participation. It is recommended that well equipped market centers in various villages should be established.

Proper urban drainage management is core to safely discharge flood generated within an urban area or from external source in to final receiving systems or to encourage on-site infiltration. With urban development flood hazard increases due to imperiousness and this reduces the infiltration capacity of a land. Similarly with the foundation of Mekelle city, flood generation became a core problem as a result of deforestation and impervious structures. According to various studies, urban storm water drainage facilities provision in it had started with road construction. Since then the municipality has tried its best to provide drainage facilities in different periods of time. But, generally, urban storm water drainage management in the city is very minimal. Because of this land degradation, river bank erosion, urban utilities degradation, natural water ways pollution and siltation and related problems are common phenomenon. The conventional way of urban drainage management is also the other problem to manage storm water in the city. That is why, this study has given a due attention to find out what real problems exist in managing the drainage system. This study is Road-map to Part-II

Ethiopia provides a well-known example of a severely degraded African environment with consequent implications for food insecurity and famine. Physical land degradation after road building has been observed in Central Ethiopian highlands through gully erosion. In this research work by using a number of methods such as Field observation, gully measurement, GIS technique ,the 1997and 2006 topomap and socio-economic questionnaires, the impacts of the road on land degradation has been studied. It investigates how highway construction in the Ethiopian Highlands affects the gully erosion risk by quantifying the catchement area before and after road construction, the number of gullies created, and its characteristics in two selected cases: Addis Ababa-Fiche and Addis Ababa-Ambo. Accordingly; since the building of the road, 17 new gullies were created immediately downslope of the studied road segmensts and 8 other gullies at a radical change in its dimensions. The average catchement area is now 58.28 hectares and 74.52 on the road segments of Fiche and Ambo respectively, which is significantly different (p<0.001) from the average pre-road catchment area of 8.45 and 14.52 hectares

Land is a scarce resource in Bangladesh. Because of this scarcity the value of land is rising day by day. Like other urban area land value in Khulna city is also showing rising trend in recent days due its gradual increase in population and socio-economic activities. Land value is depended on several criteria or facilities surrounded or related with it. General criteria affected the land value are location, types of house, other services facilities, floor space, the environmental condition and the level of utility. There are other several criteria that affect the land value; Accessibility to city center and other services facilities is one of them. Land value is depends on various types of urban facilities. The more accessible area for various facilities land value found very much high than non accessible facilitated areas. So there need a model of land value so that any individual people or various public and private organizations can buy the land securely as the model shows appropriate land value on a particular site.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 1991 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Demographics, Urban Management, Planning, University of London (Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning), course: Development Planning Unit, language: English, abstract: For many people in most of the developing countries which are experiencing rapid urbanisation, the habitat conditions are totally unsatisfactory. It is now widely accepted that one of the major reasons for such a situation 1s the poor management of land.The focus of this paper will be on this issue of urban land in the production of housing in developing countries. In this context the role of land, as the most central human settlement issue, will be analysed by looking at different land tenure concepts and the potential solutions they contain for equitable land allocation strategies. The role of tenure can probably best be illustrated by the importance of political and social problems connected with urban landownership. To mention just a few: urban unrest is often based on landlord-tenant conflicts; urban planning is frequently obstructed by powerful landowners and/or politicians; and there is often rampant corruption in relation to urban land questions and urban planning.The public, as well as the private sector each have an important role to play in the provision of affordable serviced and well-located plots for housing the majority of low-income urban inhabitants. The position which will be taken here is that ...

land cover change has become a global concern with significant impacts on people’s livelihoods. Shortage of land due to population growth has forced farmers to cultivate steep slopes and shallow soils that are vulnerable to degradation. The livelihood problems in marginal land areas are mainly related to natural resources degradation and/or to severe constraints in the realization of potential benefits from natural resources. Knowledge of the distribution and types of LU/LC change are believed to be important resource base indicators with regard to land degradation and livelihoods.

Land is one of the most important natural resources that has to be managed properly. Like most developing countries, in Ethiopia, land degradation was a chronic problem for centuries. Though there are several factors that cause land degradation in the country, tenure insecurity among farmers has a lion share. For addressing this problem, the government has emphasized it's plan on land registration and certification program. However, there are several arguments regarding whether land titling ensures tenure security and assures land management or not. This book is therefore helpful to know about the role of land registration and certification program for sustainable land management.

The urban heat island (UHI) effect has caught the great attention with the fast urbanization processes. Kolkata Metropolitan Area in India is one of the regions experiencing rapid urbanization that has resulted in UHI which will influence the regional climate, environment and socio-economic development. Two distinct Land sat ETM+ images (year of 2000 and 2010) are analyzed to delineate the UHI and its effectiveness on environment by converting the gray-scale values of band 6.1 into kinetic land surface temperature with considering the emissivity factor of land use / land cover. This analysis showed that UHI is representing the higher value of Normalized difference Built-up Index (NDBI), the temperature of which is located within the CBD region of Kolkata and also with the scattered pattern along Hugli River due to the industrial location. In order to validate the relationship between Urban Heat Island and Built-up index, several indices also are used for the correlation study like Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Moisture Stress Index (MSI), and Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI) etc.

Urban areas are growing at a very fast pace. Hence, Planning, development and management of urban areas, especially in the developing countries gain prime importance.Accuracy of the information is the prime requirement for Planning, development and management of the land parcels especially in the urban areas where the land is scarce. Hence there is a need to organize spatial information system for urban planning and management. A land information system gives support to land planning and management by providing information about the land, the resources upon it and the improvements made to it. Already existing Information systems like National Urban Information System (NUIS), Land Management Information System (LMIS) and Spatial Data Infrastructure(SDI) has been studied and found to be devoid of certain information for effective utilization.Hence an Integrated Information System with comprehensive land information system has been developed for urban planning, development and management at different Planning Levels. In addition, a plot level L.I.S has been generated in Geographical Information System (GIS) platform for effective implementation.

Estimates indicate that a majority of the earth's land has been seriously degraded. One of the key degradation problems is poor soil health, which has been identified as a key constraint in agricultural productivity and reducing rural poverty in many parts of the tropics, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Ethiopia's economy is primarily based on agriculture. However, this sector is increasingly being confronted with a rapidly growing population, and this has resulted in land use/cover changes. The changes in land use disturbs ecosystem balance and lead to a significant change in the physical, chemical, and biological soil health thereby yield declines. Half of the Ethiopian highland arable lands are moderately to severely degrade. Tigray, the Northern region of Ethiopia, suffers from extreme land degradation and soil health deterioration. Agulae catchment, the study area which is found in Eastern Tigray also has similar problems. Since previous studies on factors affecting soil health depletion has not been made at a catchment level, this study was conducted to fill the existing knowledge gap on the effects of and use change on soil health and its implication on soil management.

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Cartography, Geographic Information Science and Geodesy, Sheffield Hallam University, language: English, abstract: This research examines the changes in land use/land cover in the city of Sulaymaniyah north of Iraq and identifies land surface temperature variations among the land cover types. The primary aim of this study is to use Landsat-5 TM imagery with GIS techniques to study and investigate the impact of urban expansion on land surface temperature (LST) for three year periods. Three Landsat 5 TM images were obtained in July 1984, August 2000 and October 2010. Land use categories were derived through the use of supervised classification techniques and the land surface temperature was obtained by computing the brightness temperature from the satellite sensor. The result showed that between 1984 and 2010, there was a mild decrease in open and barren lands from 69.3% in 1984 to 57.2% in 2010 while the built-up areas increased from 11.5% in 1984 to 15.5% in 2000 and reached 25.5% by 2010.The political and economic changes in the study area are the main factors behind the recent urban expansion. The lowest LST readings were taken from the vegetation lands with values of 28oC in 1984, 29oC in 2000 and 34oC in 2010. The barren lands recorded the highest temperature of 38oC, 38oC and 34oC for the years 1984, 2000 and 2010 respectively. An interesting observation in this study is the fact that the u...

This study aims at developing a model to estimate flood damage cost caused in Gonaives, Haiti by Hurricane Jeanne in 2004. In order to reach this goal, the influence of income, inundation duration and inundation depth, slope, population density and distance to major roads on the loss costs was investigated. Surveyed data were analyzed using Excel and ArcGIS 10 software. The ordinary least square and the geographically weighted regression analyses were used to predict flood damage costs. Then, the estimates were delineated using voronoi geostatistical map tool. As a result, the factors account for the costs as high as 83%. The flood damage cost in a household varies between 24,315 through 37,693 Haitian Gourdes (approximately 607.875 through 942.325 U.S. Dollars). Severe damages were spotted in the urban area and in the rural section of Bassin whereas very low and low losses are essentially found in Labranle. The urban area was more severely affected by comparison with the rural area. Damages in the urban area are estimated at 41,206,869.57USD against 698,222,174.10 17,455,554.35USD in the rural area. In the urban part, damages were more severe in Raboteau-Jubilée and in Downtown

Monitoring land use land cover change at all levels has become central element in sustainable development, natural resources management and environmental protection. Such daily issues of the FAO and others inspired me to conduct this work using RS data and GIS over the remnant forest area in south western part of Ethiopia, Bonga town and its environs, applying PCC change detection technique and Cellular Automata Markov LULCC model. The change detection involved processing of three Landsat images and PCC. Accordingly, a chained transition was observed between the land covers all at the expense of forest cover between the study years. The projection of change has also showed that if appropriate measures are not taken the study area will suffer from environmental degradation in the near future. Thereby, in this era of global environmental crisis, monitoring and management of land is unquestionable for all on the surface of the sphere. Thus, the empirical findings of this book can be used for detailed explanatory, impact assessment, prescription and evaluative studies on the subject. Furthermore, it will provide inputs for policy formulation and decision making at different levels.

Urban area is the most important space to human society at all times. Population, economy, energy, technology, politic and so on are concentration in urban area all over the world. Thanks to the past successive developments, our lifestyle was definitely improved in all aspects. However, we have been beginning to notice that urban environment has gotten worse for the several past decades. Why? One of the biggest reasons is that almost all of urban areas are covered by impermeable surfaces such as concrete or asphalt by means of reducing green spaces. Because of this, Urban Heat Island, stormwater disaster and reduction in biodiversity have threatened urban dwellers year on year. Thus, it is quite important to restore urban green spaces with ecosystem service. However, there are rarely enough open spaces due to urban densification. This present book aimed to (a) explore methods for restoring urban biodiversity and developing low-energy buildings by means of altering the outside configuration of buildings without any dramatic changes of urban formations and (b) make a proposal to the near future urban planning toward sustainable society with an abundance of ecosystem service.

Population trends currently indicate that more than half of Ghana’s population currently lives in urban areas. The pressures of urbanization and fast growing population of the cities have therefore impacted on land management. This study analyzed land management practices in Accra and Kumasi in view of rapid urbanization. The study analyzed issues such as the operation of the land markets in the cities – trend of land use, ownership and land values, sources and process of land acquisition. Customary land ownership in the two cities constitutes about 90%. The value of land in Accra is relatively higher than in Kumasi. Accra has only one recognized customary land secretariat (CLS) whose power is limited to only Gbawe. It was also found that many individuals, families and stools own land in Accra as compared to Kumasi where all the lands belong to Asantehene under the caretaker chiefs. This makes resolution of conflicts on land in Kumasi easier as compared to Accra. Problems associated with land management include inadequate logistics, poor documentation of transactions, fragmented institutions, inadequate cooperation and coordination among the Land Sector Agencies (LSAs),

The pressure on land is increasing day by day to get food, fodder, fuel wood, timber etc. due to increase in human and livestock population of India. Therefore, the existing natural resources are deteriorating and creating the land degradation. To minimize the land degradation and fulfill the demand of fuel wood, timber, green and dry forages for human and livestock in the country, silvipastoral system has been identified as an ideal alternative. Research works reported in the literature on various aspects such as establishment, forage production from under storey, leaf fodder and fuel wood through pruning of trees, total production from the system, livestock production, soil amelioration, changes in microclimate, grass and tree interaction and economics of the system has been collected and discussed in this review. Studies revealed that total biomass and livestock production per unit area and per unit time can be enhanced manifold through silvipastoral system as compared to grazing lands available in the present situation.

The opening of the economy to external markets has brought about the re assessment of the significance of large spatial agglo­merations and the accentuation of polarization at national scale. The dual movement of centralization and de-concentration proces­ses, inwards and outwards, contributes to urban sprawl beyond the limits of metropolitan areas, as has been demonstrated in Shang­hai, Jakarta, Delta Metropolis, Mexico City, Sao Paolo and Santia­go. lts consequences for urban structure and urban morphology are immense and complex, and it has fostered social fragmentati­on of space, changing location opportunities, land uses and centra­lities. The importance of transport and communication is accentua­ted, large intra and inter urban connectivity are generated together with the generation of articulated networks, corridors, nodes with impact in land values. New lifestyles, new urban environments and new form of governance emerge and need to be theoretically and empirically underpinned.

Uncontrolled rapid urban growth due to built-up area expansion over the last few decades has created critical problems to urban planners. Therefore, it is worth to identify spatial distribution pattern of built-up area in a town. Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) provide a great potential for urban data collection & spatial analysis and not much academic literature exists on how to best utilize these technologies for urban studies. Traditional approaches to data collection and analysis no longer adequate to provide updated information for urban planners. This book, therefore, introduces alternative techniques for data collection, updating, detection of built-up area change and unauthorised constructions, identifying urban spatial distribution pattern considering built-up area density. New GIS spatial analysis techniques such as weighted mean centre and spatial autocorrelation tools introduced. These analysis techniques should help to shed light on the field of urban planning, and should be especially useful to students and professionals in urban planning or anyone else who may be considering utilizing RS and GIS for urban spatial structure analysis.

It is indisputable that land is the basis for all kinds of livelihood in all regions of the world especially in Rwanda where it constitutes the most important factors of production and survival. Many land owners do not use their land while others do not have land but they wish to use it. As result, land becomes a property to be sold and this result in what is commonly known as land market. This market is recognized and accepted but the process and mechanism through which operate only matters. Policies, regulations, procedures and laws enforcing the better use and management of land especially in urban areas are not legitimately followed by land market actors. This Book analyzes the functioning of land market in Nyanza Town, Rwanda; with three specific objectives: (1) Evaluation of the state of land acquisition and land transaction in terms of legality, cost and value, (2) Identification of factors influencing land market and the actors of this market and (3) Provide alternative solution for land market efficiency in Nyanza Town.

This book focuses on vulnerability issues associated with urban development over Dehradun paleo-alluvial fan. The city of Dehradun occupies the central part of the elongated piggy back syncline Doon Valley and sits on loose unconsolidated coarse clastic Doon gravels derived from the Lesser Himalayas being deposited by Bindal and Rispana river systems during the Late Pleistocene and Holocene age. Rapid and unmatched conversion of land into continuously built up area over the tectonically active, geomorphologically sensitive, structurally feeble, and hydrologically incapable area has grossly obliterated the natural setting. Thus the age old city has become susceptible to various physical hazards. The city area has been divided into geomorphological units having varying risk of being affected by different hazards like flash flood, landslide, and earthquake. This work examines the nature of urban space juxtaposed upon the physical space offered by the alluvial fan using satellite images; analyses of sedimentary facies, hydrological data and shear wave velocity data. Such information have been fused in GIS platform to a vulnerability map. This book is likely to help the urban planners.

One third of the world's soils have already been degraded. The burden on the land continues to grow under the combined pressures of demography, urbanization, artificialization and mining, and there are increased demands on agricultural land: changing dietary preferences, land speculation, as well as new demands for agroenergy, fiber, green chemistry, and more. Resulting issues such as soil crusting, water and wind erosion, soil salinization and soil acidity therefore constitute a major threat. The authors of this book present the main processes and factors of soil degradation, different ways to prevent it and methods of rehabilitation. The book also deals with the origin and processes of metallic and organic soil pollution as well as methods of phytoremediation and restoration. It is one of the few books to explore the issue of soil artificialization and urban soil management and to highlight how agricultural and urban waste can be used to amend and fertilize cultivated soils.

Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto blazed the trails of the Arkansas area in 1541, followed by French explorers Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette. In 1682, French explorer La Salle claimed this wilderness in the name of France, naming it Louisiana. There were many Native American tribes living in this region: The Osage, Caddo, Akansa and the Quapaw. France then ceded this region to Spain in 1762. Spain permitted Americans to settle in the Arkansas area in 1783. In 1801 Spain returned the Louisiana area to France. The U.S. acquired this territory with the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, requiring residents to file claims with the government in order to prove legal ownership of the land.

Intensive dairy production increases competition for labour in the existing farming system because dairying is more labour intensive than most of other farm activities. Also there will be competition for other scarce resources especially land in the peri- urban areas with the existing crop enterprises. Without proper information on alternative choices of enterprises and farming systems, the capacity of smallholder farmers to make appropriate decisions on how to allocate scarce land and labour resources is impeded. This book, therefore, attempts to identify and recommend enterprises and farming systems choices that can be adopted by smallholder dairy producers to increase productivity, profitability and competitiveness under varied market access.

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Children and Youth, , course: Development Studies, language: English, abstract: The population of Kenya is a youthful one comprising about 78.31% aged below 34 years. Youth, however, has been declining to engage in agriculture. Notable is that agriculture is the main economic activity of Kenya. The sector has been recording a poor performance in the recent years and the continuous decline of youth engaging in agriculture may lead to a further setback. The effect will be a strain to the achievements of set government goals towards economic growth and development. Therefore, this study sought to assess challenges affecting youth engagement in agriculture in Kiambu County. Specifically, the study sought to find out; to what extent knowledge, land, attitude and credit affect youth's engagement in agriculture. The study was conducted in Limuru Sub County because of the issue of high land fragmentation. The study adopted a survey research design that was cross sectional in nature. It targeted a population of 10,633 youth. The researcher used proportionate sampling to sample 300 youths from the peri-urban population of the constituency. A semi structured questionnaire was administered to both female and male research subjects. Thereafter, quantitative data was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) computer software version 11.5. The data was presented in form of frequencies, means, pie chart bar g...

Land degradation is one of the major challenges in agricultural production in many parts of the world, especially in developing nations, such as Ethiopia. A number of soil and water conservation methods were introduced to combat land degradation since 1970s, but adoption of these practices remains below expectations. Factors such as slope of the area, contact with extension workers, tenure status, age, size of house hold and training influenced farmers to adopt soil and water conservation methods. Opportunities related to adopted methods of soil conservation are effective in addressing on farm flooding, increased productivity and reduced soil erosion. Despite the benefits the study also revealed that some challenges which are related to adopted methods they took and reduced plot size, poor design, need more labor and lack of incentives. Thus, the origin of the hurdles ranges from intellectual, financial, biophysical and technical, infrastructural issues. Knowing the respective bottlenecks and problems allows developing strategies to overcome the problems of soil and water conservation seriously and genuinely.

Strong bonds form stronger materials. For this reason, the investigation on thermal degradation of materials is a significantly important area in research and development activities. The analysis of thermal stability can be used to assess the behavior of materials in the aggressive environmental conditions, which in turn provides valuable information about the service life span of the materiel. Unlike other books published so far that have focused on either the fundamentals of thermal analysis or the degradation pattern of the materials, this book is specifically on the mechanism of degradation of materials. The mechanism of rapturing of chemical bonds as a result of exposure to high-temperature environment is difficult to study and resulting mechanistic pathway hard to establish. Limited information is available on this subject in the published literatures and difficult to excavate. Chapters in this book are contributed by the experts working on thermal degradation and analysis of the wide variety of advanced and traditional materials. Each chapter discusses the material, its possible application, behavior of chemical entities when exposed to high-temperature environment and mode and the mechanistic route of its decomposition. Such information is crucial while selecting the chemical ingredients during the synthesis or development of new materials technology.

After decades of suburban sprawl, job loss, and lack of regional government, Detroit has become a symbol of post-industrial distress and also one of the most complex urban environments in the world. In Revolution Detroit: Strategies for Urban Reinvention, John Gallagher argues that Detroit's experience can offer valuable lessons to other cities that are, or will soon be, dealing with the same broken municipal model. A follow-up to his award-winning 2010 work, Reimagining Detroit, this volume looks at Detroit's successes and failures in confronting its considerable challenges. It also looks at other ideas for reinvention drawn from the recent history of other cities, including Cleveland, Flint, Richmond, Philadelphia, and Youngstown, as well as overseas cities, including Manchester and Leipzig. Revolution Detroit surveys four key areas: governance, education and crime, economic models, and the repurposing of vacant urban land. Among the topics Gallagher covers are effective new urban governance models developed in Cleveland and Detroit; new education models highlighting low-income-but-high-achievement schools and districts; creative new entrepreneurial business models emerging in Detroit and other post-industrial cities; and examples of successful repurposing of vacant urban land through urban agriculture, restoration of natural landscapes, and the use of art in public places. He concludes with a cautious yet hopeful message that Detroit may prove to be the world's...

Land degradation is rising in Northern Ghana and the national government and various NGOs are seeking to address and to prevent the derivative consequences of this development. Unsustainable farming practice contributes to land degradation, and agricultural extension service is a shared means of intervention for the promotion of sustainable farming. By taking a deeper look at the state-NGO-society dynamics, the work provides an analysis of the consequences of actors' different understandings and approaches to unsustainable land management. The analysis is focused around the interplay between historical political discourses, national policies and specific NGO interventions with relation to extension services. The analysis casts light on power relations and their influence on land management in Northern Ghana. Despite the fact that the government and the NGO used as a case are placed within different discourses regarding views on small-scale farmers' capabilities, there are indications that the gap between the two actors is closing. An increasing emphasis on decentralisation and participation is creating new opportunities and room for manoeuvre for more actors.
