  title={Key Methods for Land use Impact Assessment : An Overview},
  author={Shivangi Shukla and T Sakshi and Ch. Shivakoti},
INTRODUCTION The current position of development of economy of world is described by increasing level of the land use and the impact of environment associated with it. The intensity and complexity of the both manmade and natural interactions lead to a deterioration of the quality of land, food security concerns, lack of environmental sustainability and biodiversity reduction at different levels. As land is one of the most crucial resources required for human beings, not only for living but also…
