SCIENCE PRESS, NEW YORK, USA.
This paper employs Remote Sensing and GIS methodologies to study the vulnerability of the western Niger Delta to flood risk and reported that about 27percent and 63 percent of the land respectively lie below 1m and 5m above the mean sea level. It captures the different adaptive strategies employed by the local populations to respond to flood risk. The paper was published by the Science Press of New York as part of the peer-reviewed proceeding of Flood Defence 2002. It is no doubt a very good reading in local adaptive strategies to flood risk management
