Abstract

The present thesis thrusts the case study of the Zamfara and Runka grazing reserves in northwestern Nigeria into the debate on cropland expansion and land cover change in semi-arid West Africa. It demonstrates the efficient use of geographic information, GIS, and remote sensing in a context of poor geo-information and presents a timely analysis of land use and land cover change in this key resource area. - (IfL)
