Shanty Towns in Sub-sahara Africa

This presentation is intended to address basic problems that contribute to urban migration and development of shanty towns in sub-sahara Africa.  Desertification in the North, reducing land size which affect farmers, air and water pollution affecting marine  environment and fisherman.  Increasing migration of these group of farmers, fishermen and others out of poverty in search of jobs are the underlying causes for increase in of  shanty towns.  Lack of  regular electric power supply is a major constraint because it threatens even the source of income when factories rely on generators for production and the workers do not care about carbon monoxide they inhale at work or  home. This presentation is directed at governments of these regions especially Nigeria.

I hope the information provided will stir-up meaningful discussion. Please leave below your comments or questions.  Thanks you.
