Examination of The Management Strategies for Fluvial Erosion in South Eastern Nigeria

Examination of The Management Strategies for Fluvial Erosion in South Eastern Nigeria

ABSTRACT

Consequent to the problems caused by Fluvial (i.e. Erosion by running water), a number of management strategies has been put forward by scholars. These measures range from soil conservation strategies, mechanical/engineering methods, biological and agronomic method, mapping, land use practice, awareness campaign, legislation / policy and sustainability of land resources. Ofomata, (1985), observed that soil erosion is a grave environmental problem that can be effectively managed by addressing the vital components of the broad issue of environmental resources management in Nigeria. This study assesses the Examination of the Management Strategies for Fluvial Erosion in South Eastern Nigeria.  The specific study guiding the study was to; to create and Implement the Geo database management system for monitoring of Gully erosion in the study area. The study finds out that Ideato North has been an erosion prone area due to the topographic structure of the area. meanwhile Ideato south annual soil loss decreased from 3827658 t/h/yr to 3826907 t/h/yr and due to the abundance of rainfall in 2012 the soil loss in Ideato south increased to 3886562 t/h/yr. Orlu LGA has increased throughout the period of study because of the venerability of it terrain which make it exposed to the Erosion.
