The dynamics of urban sprawl: Land-use changes, food supply and sustainable agricultural production systems in the arid and semi-arid zones

Duration: 01/Jan/2017 - 31/Dec/2020

Locations: Asia

Project contact: Dr S Nedumaran (

Donor: Government department -national- state or local,Academic institute eg university or college

CGIAR Research Program: Dryland Systems

The aim of this project is to identify resilience and adaptedness criteria by focusing on two different agronomic systems in developing countries. The specific urban system within these "Cairo" in the Egyptian mid zone and "Hyderabad" in the Indian semi-arid zone - will allow us to investigate and compare agronomic, institutional and regional variations. A system-resilience frarr.ework will be used that rmps how high-rates of urban sprawl cause land-use changes affecting competing use of natural resources such as land and water.
