Rise In Sea Level Could Cause Lagos Coastline Communities Be Submerged In Water
There are fears that some shoreline communities in Eti-Osa area of Lagos State might be consumed by the Ocean surge as the rise in sea level has continued to claim properties in the area leaving families displaced.
As part of the Lagos Wetland Protection Campaign, this a short documentary showing the real-life experiences of people going through the loss of wetlands in their community. It is a curation of stories from the people of Oworonshoki, in Lagos, Nigeria. They share their experiences from the recent sand-filling activities over the years, the challenges with the flood, how they have managed to cope through it, and the efforts of the government so far.
Nigeria’s sprawling commercial capital Lagos is already feeling the impact of climate change. Rising sea levels pose a threat to the city’s sustainability. And some coastal communities are on the verge of being wiped out. CCTV’s Deji Badmus has more.
Lagos has a problem: rising sea levels threaten parts of the Nigerian megacity. More than 20 million people already live there and even more are arriving. A multi-billion project aims to solve the problem for some. More from this edition of Global 3000: http://www.dw.com/en/global-3000-the-…
Deforestation has left only 20 percent of the once gigantic Atlantic Forest. Cities such as São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro depend on the rainforest for their water supplies. Two sisters are realizing their childhood dream by planting new trees there.
This documentary is the last in a series of four reportages which present climate change and water issues in relation to agriculture, ecosystems, natural hazards, health and technologies. This video focuses on the collaborative research projects HEALTHY FUTURES and QWeCI, which are funded through the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme.
Both HEALTHY FUTURES and QWeCI focus on major vector-borne diseases such as malaria, Rift Valley Fever and schistosomiasis and are complimentary to each other, with QWeCI focusing on western Africa and HEALTHY FUTURES on eastern Africa.
http://Liberal-Fascism.Comhttp://SuperDuperSocialism.Blogspot.Com We have all heard the story, that Europeans landed on the west coast of Africa and kidnapped the natives to sell in Europe and the Americas. In case you have not heard that one, the clip of Professor Angela Davis should bring you up to speed. However, the kidnap story is false, as Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. shatters this falsehood in “The Slave Kingdoms”, part of “The Wonders of Africa” PBS series from 1999.
