    Agriculture is a major contributor to climate change,
    emitting the three major greenhouse gases (GHGs) –
    carbon dioxide (CO2), methane and nitrous oxide – into the
    atmosphere. According to the Fifth Assessment Report of
    the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),
    the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use sector “is
    responsible for just under a quarter (~10–12 Gt CO2eq/yr) of
    [all] anthropogenic GHG emissions mainly from deforestation
    and agricultural emissions from livestock, soil and nutrient

    This compendium and analysis of Cities in the BRICS countries were developed through a partnership between the South African Cities Network (SACN) and the South African Research Chair in Spatial Analysis and City Planning (SA&CP) at the University of the Witwatersrand. Since South Africa joined BRICS in 2010, multiple connections have been forged between South Africa and its alliance partners. However, although there is a growing volume of engagements, there is still inadequate knowledge and understanding across the BRICS.

    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.

    Remote sensing and GIS tools have broadly helped hydrogeologists to delineate the groundwater prospective zones for watershed development and management. The origin, movement and existence of groundwater depends on several factors such as slope, drainage density, land use, geology, lineament density and geomorphology. Based on these, the mapping and identification of groundwater potential zones were carried out in a part of Nalgonda district, Telangana, India.
