Publication Title Geospatial Assessment Of Wetland Cultivation As A Response To Urban Food Security In Peri Urban Lagos.
Publication Authors Omisore Emanuel O., Awoniran Dauda R.
Year Published 2015
Abstract

  This study examined the cultivation of wetland as a response to urban food security in the Peri-Urban Lagos wetland between 1984 and 2012. Two sets of topographical map, a LandSat TM image of 1984, LandSat ETM+ of 2000 and Google image of 2012 were used for the study. The topographical maps and satellite images were digitally processed using ERDAS IMAGIN 9.1 software and exported to ArcGis 9.3 for further processing and analysis. Findings from the research indicated that between 1984 and 2012, 98.12 ha (5.48%) of forested wetland and 363.28 ha (18.53%) of non-forested wetland in the study area have been converted for agricultural land use. As an additional source of ground-truth information, 26 farmers were selected through purposive sampling for focus group discussion, on the history and major types of land use in the study area. Thematic analysis of the focus group discussions revealed that wetlands are being cultivated by the inhabitant of the study area to augment their livelihood. The study however, recommended sustainable management and utilization of the fragile wetland ecosystem; dissemination of information on modern and innovative urban farming practices that have been successfully practiced in other parts of the world.This study examined the cultivation of wetland as a response to urban food security in the Peri-Urban Lagos wetland between 1984 and 2012.

Publication Title Assessment Of Environmental Responses To Land Use/land Cover Dynamics In The Lower Ogun River Basin, Southwestern Nigeria

Abstract

This study investigates the pattern of land use/land cover change in the Lower Ogun River Basin
between 1984 and 2012. Two sets of topographical maps, a Landsat-5 TM image of 1984, Landsat-7
ETM+ of 2000 and a Google Earth image of 2012 were used for the study. The topographical maps and
satellite images were digitally processed using ILWIS 3.2™ software and exported to ArcGIS 9.3™ for
further processing and analysis. The processed images were subsequently classified using the
maximum likelihood classification algorithm, resulting in the identification of seven land use classes.
Furthermore, change detection analysis was carried out using Cross Module in ILWIS™. The result of
the change detection analysis indicated that between 1984 and 2000, 80.08% of the land cover in the
study area has been converted to other land uses while only 19.92% remained unchanged. Also, within
the same period, light forests, non-forested wetlands and forested wetlands decreased at average
annual rates of 8.26, 4.66 and 2.81%, respectively, while water bodies also decreased at an annual rate
of 0.17%. On the other hand, farmland, shrubs and urban/built-up areas expanded at average annual
rates of 7.23, 6.74 and 4.65%, respectively. The result further indicates that between 2000 and 2012,
49.86% of the land cover has been converted to other land uses, while 50.14% remained unchanged, and
that farmlands, shrubs, urban/built-up areas and forested wetlands expanded at average annual rates of
6.01, 1.95, 0.89 and 0.17%, respectively, just as light forests, non-forested wetlands and water bodies
decreased annually by 8.26, 2.70 and 1.40%, respectively. Five randomly collected soil samples were
analyzed for their physicochemical properties. Findings show the growing impact of urban agriculture
on wetland ecosystem within the study area, manifesting in soil degradation and biodiversity loss. The
implication of these findings is that the area is susceptible to devastating flooding which can culminate
in the loss of lives and properties. This study recommends the development of effective land
management information system and policies that will ensure sustainable management of fragile
ecosystem.This study investigates the pattern of land use/land cover change in the Lower Ogun River Basin

Publication Title Air Pollution And Climate Change In Lagos, Nigeria: Needs For Proactive Approaches To Risk Management And Adaptation

Abstract

The significance of air pollution as one of the contemporary issues and accelerating factors that propel
climate change in both developed and developing countries cannot be overemphasized. The problem of
air pollution has seemingly become intractable with the incessant failure of both global and local
environmental policies purportedly emplaced to address its devastating trend, particularly in growing
megacities of the world. The devastating effects of the phenomenon are more pronounced in megacities
of developing countries than in developed ones. Lagos, as an industrialized, commercialized and an
emerging megacity in Nigeria, has been subjected to several predictions of the negative impacts of
changing climatic conditions partly caused by ubiquitous air pollution. Efforts at stemming the tide of the
increasing challenges of air pollution worldwide has significantly been thwarted by inadequate funding,
hence the need to review the literature on the environmental implications of growing air pollution, its
contributions to climate change and its negative impacts on the lives and properties of teeming
inhabitants of Lagos. A review like this will provide a synthesis of knowledge and information on
mitigative and adaptive measures that can be adopted to minimize the impacts of air pollution on the
mega city.This study utilizes consciously selected and current literatures on the subject matter and found
that Lagos inhabitants have been vulnerable to virtually all forms of damaging effects of climate change
majorly propelled by seemingly uncontrollable air pollution. This implies that the situation requires
proactive measures, otherwise, avoidable loss of lives and large scale destruction of properties may be
inevitable. The paper therefore advocates involvement of all stakeholders in both mitigation and
adaptation measures to climate change through enhancement of indigenous knowledge and creation of
awareness among citizens about the need to be conscious of their carbon foot prints.
