                                                   ABSTRACT

This study examines the spatial and temporal changes in land use and land cover of Madalla in Suleja Local Government Area (LGA) of Niger State between 1984 and 2013, as well as, the rate of change, factors responsible and suggests measures on how to check the trend in order to maintain sustainable development. The study utilized ILWIS 3.3 software for the processing and classification of the tri-date (1984, 1995, and 2013) satellite images. The method for the analyses of the land use and land cover change is the Post-classification Comparison Method (PCM). Land use and land cover change data obtained from each period is presented in colour composite maps and tables. The results obtained show that the proportion of area covered by built up land, farm land and bare soil is on the increase, whilst there is decline in vegetation. Built up land increased from 7.041 km2 (or 5.2%) in 1984 to ( 45%) in 2013, farmland from 50.1 km2 (or 36.7%) decreases to (20.4%) and a decline in vegetation from 68.7 km2 (or 50.4%) in 1984 to 43.1 km2 (or 31.5%) in 2013. The study reveals that urbanization and population dynamic are largely responsible for the significant change and modifications in land use and land cover of Madalla in Suleja LGA. Indication from respondents in figure 4.10 showed the total number of respondents who responded to the question of factors responsible for landuse/land cover change of Madalla, bulk of the respondents (58.67% making 88) indicated that population dynamics (increase in population) has been the major factor responsible for the changes in landuse/land cover of Madalla, while (34.67% making 52) indicates urbanization (urban expansion) as factor responsible for landuse/land cover changes. These landuse/land cover changes lead to environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, infrastructure overload, etc. To mitigate these impacts there should be constant monitoring of urban growth and changes in land use/land cover and put in place appropriate response mechanism in line with the towns and regional master plan to maintain sustainable development of Madalla and the entire Suleja LGA.
