It presents a case study that was part of a research project combining remote sensing and political ecology to explore land use/cover change and its drivers in the catchment of the Segara Anakan lagoon.

The Dry Zone was chosen to study because the EC & FAO (2007) classified this region as the most vulnerable area of the country.
