Impact of Rural Livelihood on Land Use Land Covers in Tuichhuahen Watershed of Kolasib District, Mizoram: India

Dr. Rintluanga Pachuau

Abstract: Land and forest are an important component of natural resources. Though humans have been modifying land resources to obtain food and other essentials for thousands of years, current rates, extents and intensities of land use land cover changes are far greater than ever in history, driving unprecedented changes in ecosystems and environmental processes at local, regional and global scales. The forest ecosystem provides watershed services and its modification results in multidimensional changes in watershed processes. Tuichhuahen watershed harbor good forest ecosystem services, but the changes in land use land cover due to anthropogenic activity disturb these services even beyond the watershed. Therefore, it is an imperative for planner, researcher and policy maker to analyse land use land cover changes at the watershed level.
