Sanni, M, Odekunle T, Adesina F.  2012.  Spatio-Temporal Variation of Drought Severity in the Sudano-Sahelian Region of Nigeria: Implications for Policies on Water Management, 2012/09/01. :415-430. Abstract

The African Ministerial Council on Science and Technology agreed that drought is one of the major environmental problems thatis afflicting the African continent, with its consequent negative impacts on the socioeconomic development of the affected
areas. It is within this context that this study assessed the spatio-temporal variation of drought severity in the Sudano-Sahelian
region (SSR) of Nigeria, which is highly vulnerable to drought. The study analysed spatio-temporal variation of drought severity
in the region between 1961 and 2006 using the Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA).
It was established that most of the extreme droughts of the highest magnitude were recorded around the 1970s and 1990s and
that there were indications that this would continue in the future. Results also identified sub-regions characterized by a
different level of drought risks in the region. The study concluded by making appropriate policy recommendations for effective
water management for the region.

This study aimed at finding out and examining the forms of interaction among the rural and urban settlements in Ijesaland, Osun State in the forest region of southwestern Nigeria. The study revealed that interactions in the study area were influenced by factors such as distance, and availability of alternative centre outside the region. As economic interaction in the study area showed that people were more unwilling to travel to the service centres as distance increases from them, social interaction indicated a relatively low distance decay function suggesting that distance factor had little impact on social interactions among settlements in the study area. The observed
interrelationships among settlements of various hierarchies in Ijesaland were linked to historical ties that bind them. However, the observed patterns showed that settlements of the same hierarchy interacted more among themselves than with any other. With these results, it is hoped that the attentions of policy makers in Nigeria, as a whole, would be paid to the development of policies to address the specific needs of the urban and rural areas in the country. The study underscored that traditional ethnographic regions are often characterized by regional imbalance relating to Core-periphery Model of Freidman.
