Impact of dynamic land use and land cover changes on the livelihood of local communities and ecosystem services is a major concern. This is particularly evident in most dryland agricultural systems in South Asia. We study land use/land cover (LULC) changes over the last two decades in a watershed (9589 ha) located in semi-arid eco-region in South India (Anantapuram district) using Landsat and IRS imagery. We captured additional data through field observations and focused group discussions.

The study area Rangapur watershed covers an area of about 2079 ha, is one of the drought prone areas in the middle Krishna Basin in Raichur district of Karnataka. An attempt is made to suggest location priority plan for the sustainable development of the area using GIS and remote sensing techniques. The IRS P6 LISS III imagery was used for the preparation of land use/land cover and hydrogeomorphology maps. Geologically most of the watershed is covered by the rocks of Archean age i.e. granite gneiss.
