|Abstract: ||This paper is a critical review, which synthesizes the theoryapplication
linkage of periurban
land use and land
cover changes (LULCC) using the Bosomtwe District in the Ashanti Region of Ghana as the case. From abstractive
thinking to empirical possibility, we conjecture human decisions within agentbased
modeling (ABM) perspective.
The key question the paper has tried to answer is: what are the probable future land use conversion and modification potentials in the district? LULCC in periurban
areas respond to social and biophysical dynamics.
These control spatial distribution of populations, infrastructure, and the space economy. Under systemic laxity of
land uses deviate from effective land use plans.|
