Résumé
The work presented here aims to understand land use land cover change in semi arid landscapes. Specifically, this research examines the ways in which savanna landscapes are managed and monitored within the context of climate change, and addresses factors such as 1) the spatial and temporal patterns of change, 2) the nature of land cover change occurring, and 3) the underlying processes influencing these. I explore implications of landscape monitoring and management strategies employed in southern Africa, highlight challenges associated with such strategies, and explore the potential of new techniques in an effort to inform the management of savanna landscapes in southern Africa.
