Land use change is a process by which human activities transform the natural landscape, referring to how land has been used, usually emphasizing the functional role of land for economic activities. Land use changes are often nonlinear and might trigger feedbacks to the system, stress living conditions.

Changes in land use are among the important forces driving global climate change. Climate change can also be expected to have an important impact on land use change. But it is the context within which land use change is occurring that gives it special importance.

The land use pattern primarily determines the landscape pattern in areas where land use is intensifying. Therefore, land use patterns may be essential factors in determining landscape stability and should have the attention of land use planners. Land use and land cover change have been among the most important perceptible changes taking place around us.

Although perceptible, the magnitude, variety and the spatial variability of the.
