Blurb/Shorttext:
One of the most pervasive and urgent problems confronting coastal states in Nigeria today is how to achieve a healthy balance between man's developmental needs and stability that is essential for the preservation of natural environmental systems. Coastal development, urbanization and population growth have increased greatly in recent years and they are imposing a heavy burden on coastal resources in the country.The need to achieve this healthy balance in Nigeria has become necessary because of its environmental and socio-economic importance not only to itself but also to the country as a whole. The book therefore aimed at investigating the planning and management of the wetlands of coastal areas of Nigeria with a view to proffering a planning and management approach. The book also examined the current human activities and its impact on the coastal environments.Most importantly, the book presents a practical model for Integrated Coastal Planning and Management (ICPM) as a means of addressing all sectoral challenges in the planning and management of coastal resources in developing countries.
