Abstract

Eyenghe Tari*, Wocha Chikagbum and Fred-Nwagwu Wobiaeri Florence

ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT The aim of the study is to identify and assess the problems and challenges of flooding in Yenagoa City, Nigeria. The study adopted a multi-stage and simple random technique to administer and collect data for study. The study found that the city experiences flooding regularly due to unchecked development on wetlands fuelled by unplanned rapid urbanisation, weak development control practice, inadequate storm water drainage infrastructure, development along and within natural drainage paths and unsustainable waste management practices which all have given rise to environmental, health, social and health challenges. The study recommended that Yenagoa Masterplan, 2004 should be implemented, sustainable flood management framework should be prepared, non-structural and structural techniques should be employed where appropriate in the city.
