Sudan as a Sahelian country faced numerous drought
periods resulting in famine and mass immigration.
Spatial data on dynamics of land use and land cover
is scarce and/or almost non-existent. The North
Kordofan State is located in the centre of Sudan .
The region generally yields reasonable harvests of
rainfed crops and grasslands supports plenty of
livestock. But any attempts to develop medium- to
long-term strategies of sustainable land management
have been hampered by the impacts of drought and
desertification over a long period of time. This
resarch aimed to determine and analyse the dynamics
of change of land use/land cover classes.
