1This part, made of three chapters, points out the spatial dimension of rural-urban linkages in and around those mountains. The dynamics and characteristics of those changing rural, urban and rural-urban landscapes reflect the Land Use and Cover Change (LUCC), originating from urban growth, in those densely populated rural areas1. Moreover, the physical dimension is more prominent than elsewhere because of the mountainous features: slopes, altitude, differences in level, etc. It’s why the first paper discusses the transect methodology, based on the Uporoto Mountains-Lake Nyasa road example in Southern Tanzania. The two following papers deal with Mt Elgon in Uganda: there, there are many land uses and cover changes linked with both local (Mbale, etc.) and national (Kampala) urban growth!
