Land Use Land Cover and Ecosystems

There has been rapid urbanization in the last decade in Africa due to high population growth. This has led to rapid changes in tropical forest ecosystems with tremendous environmental impacts, contributing significantly to climate change and biodiversity loss.

Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts which address the following topics:

  • Land use land cover changes
  • Spatio-temporal modelling of landscape dynamics
  • Transportation and Urbanization
  • Coastal zone monitoring
  • Ecological and landscape restoration
  • Biodiversity mapping
  • Environmental change
