Abstract: A small scale changes in land use and land cover (LULC) in different part of the planet has a substantial contribution for the regional or global LULC changes. The combined effect of these changes could also result a global impact on the natural as well as the human environment. To make informed planning and management decisions in addressing these adverse impacts, in-deep knowledge and information on the local scale changes require an immediate attention. This study aimed to investigate the extent and magnitude of LULC changes in Finote Birihan kebele, Ethiopia from 1986 to 2018 using Geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing approaches. It is found that in the current study area, agriculture land and built-up area has increased by about 37 and 497%, respectively at the expense of grassland (55%), forest land (33%) and shrub lands (32%).
