Changes in the condition and composition of the land cover can have significant impacts on climate. These changes alter the sustainability of different biophysical resources including soil, vegetation, water and agricultural resources. Recent developments in Satellite Remote Sensing offer a number of potential benefits for the improved analysis of fine scale land use and land cover change particularly for critical hydrological, forest and agricultural processes. This project proposes to use Land Change Modeller (LCM) and Markov-Cellular Automaton (M-CA) and recoSatellite imagery to model historic land use changes in the Dedza district of Malawi. These data will then be integrated into a model to predict land use change in the study area over the next thirty years with the aim of building resilience against climate change.
