Impact of urbanization on development of fact abuja

ABSTRACT 
  This seminar is to examined the impact of rapid urbanization on the sustainable development of fct Abuja. An interesting finding of the study is that the primary factor for the rapid urbanization of Fct within a short period of time is migration. The consequence of this rapid urbanization and population rise within a short period is that infrastructural facilities and services are grossly inadequate to cater for the population.  The study reveals that there is inadequate good quality housing, poor waste management facilities, inadequate electric power supply, inadequate good quality domestic water supply, inadequate and unaffordable health care facilities,  poor environmental health and traffic congestion on Abuja major road. These challenges do not commend abuja as a satellite town on the path of sustainable urban development. 
  Recommendations were proffered to address these challenges. There is the urgent need for the Abuja Federal Capital Territory Administration to embark on urban renewal of most area councils in fct. Adequate infrastructural facilities and services should be provided for the residents. Mechanism for periodic review and upgrading should be put in place to ensure a qualitative built urban environment, with adequate resources and facilities to support a sustainable healthy living and economic progress of the residents of Abuja.
