ABSTRACT

Deforestation in Africa has been a consequence of a combination of factors including

agricultural expansion, commercial harvesting, increased firewood collection,

inappropriate land and tree tenure regimes and industria lization. Drought, civil wars

and bush fires also contribute significantly to deforestation. (F.A.O 1997, 1998).

The main variables ~ considered included the factors leading to deforestation

(cases), the consequences of this vice on the environment, what has been done to

mitigate these consequences and the way forward through the suggested

recommendations. A general survey research design was used in carrying out the

study. Methods of data collection include questionnaire and interviews, direct ,,

observation, photography and literature review.

The deterioration of natural resources in this forest has not only destroyed the

environment, but also undermined the very foundation on which economic growth and long-term prosperity depend.
