Abstract:

 

The rapid increase in world population and the irreversible flow of people from rural to urban areas have become common problems for governments and decision-makers in both the developed and the developing countries. The mismatch between the supply and the demand of land leads to the degradation of environmentally fragile land, occupation of hazard prone areas, and loss of cultural resources, open space and prime agricultural lands of the study area. The current research is an attempt to study the pattern of landuse change and agricultural land transformation in Narayanganj city
