THE TOURISM POTENTIALS OF GURARA WATERFALLS NIGERIA ab 36.9 EURO Harnessing the Benefits of Globalisation and Urbanisation
With the geometric growth of population figures in African countries like Nigeria, urbanisation becomes a process that cannot be halted. Urban topography, morphology of buildings, thermal features of urban materials as well as anthropogenic activities in the urban centres combine to reduce outgoing longwave radiation, thus hindering sensible heat loss and consequently generating more heat, thus causing atmospheric and surface temperatures of urban centres to be higher than that of the surrounding sub-urban centres leading to the formation of Meteorological events such as the Urban Heat Island (UHI). The UHI effect exhibit negative impacts on various aspects of human life such as health, environment, power and water supply/consistency and even economic activities. Consequently,this work has broadened the understanding of the effect of urbanisation on the occurrence of UHI phenomenon, and by extension established an in-depth assessment of the UHI impact on the livelihood of people as this is necessary in an attempt to put forward appropriate policies and monitoring strategies so as to make informed decision. It is a useful guide to Meteorologists and Environmental Managers.
With the current rate at which the concerns for the effects of the environment on man and his livelihood has translated into research, developing countries in the tropics, including Nigeria, deserve to be studied. This is more important when studies have argued that the accelerated growth of urbanisation in African countries in recent decades could cause diverse environmental problems, including transport and industrial pollution that may be associated with local climate change, and the consequent effect on health. This study investigated the physiologic climate of Nigeria and applied a geographical information technique that made it possible to produce better maps than what were presented in previous studies, and with higher accuracy.
Colonial State and Urbanisation in Sokoto Metropolis, C. 1903-1960 A.D. by A. A. Sifawa is a record of facts and analysis on colonial enterprise in Nigeria... The book demonstrates an interesting paradox in urbanization drive during the British administration of Sokoto. Whereas, the face and speed of British policies in the provision of infrastructure and social services were materially motivated, the responses of the Sokoto town's people were ideologically driven. It showcases an interesting, though silent, but dodged clash of two varying civilizations. The book, there is no doubt, is a must read by students of colonialism all over the world and Africa in particular. It is meant for both scholars and the general public. It was written with this consideration and in a Language lucid, accessible and intelligible to all. I, therefore, wish to recommend it to all. Prof. H.M. Maishanu
