These tasks are studied by using an exploratory approach, with participant observation, interviews through random and cluster sampling among villagers, local land users, and officials, as well aswith land cover interpretation and secondary statistical data. This book is relevant for educational use together with policy input on the issues exploring livelihood security in a rapidly growing developing country.
