  • Product Description
 

Urbanisation and climate change are two of the greatest environmental challenges the world is experiencing. Wetlands bear the heaviest effects of urbanisation in Kumasi, Ghana. Also, current forecasts show that climate change will very much affect sub-Saharan Africa and may cause flooding in many areas. Already, Kumasi has been battling with a growing incidence and scale of floods, mostly, at the suburbs closer to wetland areas. This book therefore provides a vivid presentation of the interlocked issues of urbanisation, climate change, wetland ecology and degradation and flooding in a developing country city setting: Kumasi, Ghana. The reader is first provided with a general introduction and a theoretical basis of the issues discussed in the book. The specific ecological conditions, wetland management, climate and climate change, floods and adaptations to living with floods are described with illustrations, pictures, tables and charts to give the reader a deeper and better understanding of the issues. This book will be very useful to university students, researchers and teachers in the field of geography and urban sociology of developing countries.
