Description

The Kainji Dam across the Niger in Nigeria was closed in 1968. In this book, Wolf Roder evaluates the Nigerian development in areas such as population, agriculture, pastoral nomadism, subsistence fishing, housing and public health, over the past twenty-five years. This study finds that the effects of the man-made lake have, on occasion, been benign. Rather, secular changes have had the largest impact on the Nigerian economy. Contents: Preface; Introductory Overview; Recent Political and Economic History; Environmental Change; Population; Agriculture; Livestock and Range; Fish and Fishermen; Wildlife and Kainji Lake National Park; Road and Water Transport; Market Places; Housing and Resettlement; Public Health; Women; Conclusions; Some Historical Dates; Glossary; Bibliography.
