    A system dynamics approach was used to determine the sustainable stocking rate of the Menz sheep population in the Ethiopian highland. A model was developed to simulate stocking rate based on communal grazing land. The model is weather and resource (feed supply) driven. Pasture growth and dynamics was modeled using rainfall and temperature data. Herd dynamics was based on age groups of male and female animals from birth to herd exit, taking production and reproduction parameters into account.

    Urban Sprawl is the spreading out of a city and its suburbs over more and more rural land at the periphery of an urban area. This involves the conversion of rural land into built up, developed land over time. Sprawl is characterised by one or more existing patterns of development. Those most frequently mentioned are low-density, leapfrogging, distance to central facilities, dispersion of employment and residential development, and continuous strip development.

    Compulsory acquisition is power of the State to deprive or acquire any title or other interest in land for a public purpose subject to prompt payment of compensation (Land Act,2012).This project explored how geospatial technology can be used to assemble, manage and disseminate information required in the process of compulsory land acquisition. This involved use of Web GIS for creation of a web-based database application; this would assist in making the land acquisition process more effective, efficient and transparent.

    October, 2003

    This project thesis presents a conceptual framework for a land information system that
    would result in increased revenue collection from the land rent section of the Department
    of Lands, Ministry of Lands and Settlement. It point out the need for a comprehensive
    database containing both physical and socio-economic data supported by powerful
    analytical capabilities as the basis for effective decision making on land rent for tax
    revenue collection.
    The Government has admittedly a lot of untapped revenue in the form of unrevised land

    strategy implementation, a case study of Indigenous Information Network was conducted.
    The study aimed to answer two research questions: what were the challenges of strategy
