    The fast-paced urbanization of recent decades entails that many regions are facing seemingly uncontrolled land-use changes (LUCs) that go hand in hand with a range of environmental and socio-economic challenges. In this paper, we use an integrated cellular automata–Markov chain (CA–MC) model to analyze and predict the urban expansion of and its impact on LUC in the city of Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. To this end, the research marshals high-resolution Landsat images of 1991, 2002, 2011, and 2018.

    Land provides a host of ecosystem services, of which the provisioning services are often
    considered paramount. As the demand for agricultural products multiplies, other ecosystem services
    are being degraded or lost entirely. Finding a sustainable trade-off between food production and
    one or more of other ecosystem services, given the variety of stakeholders, is a matter of optimizing
    land use in a dynamic and complex socio-ecological system. Land degradation reduces our options

    This volume contains the presentations made at the Eighth International Conference on Dryland
    Development. It is hoped that it will serve as a repository of information on the problems and prospects of
    sustainable management of dry areas and preventing desertification, and will thus be of interest to those
    involved in research, extension, development and policy formulation for the benefit of the people of the dry areas. It is our belief it would serve as an important contribution to the objectives of the IYDD.
