Abstract:

Like in the arid and semiarid ecosystems, the northern limit of rainy season crops ecosystems have a dynamic influenced by harsh climatic condition. In addition to this, there is a high demand in goods and services by the over increasing population. The objective of the present study was to analyze land use in pastoral and agropastoral areas in the department of Goudoumaria, located in the South East of Niger. It is an agropastoral areas, where the practice and success of rural activities is based on physical conditions, the repartition and regularity of rainfall. Hence, many sites have been selected in the study areas and data has been collected from each site and analyzed. Results of land use mapping revealed a change in vegetal cover appearance and this lead to increase in degradation of fertile lands by remobilization of dunes previously fixed.
